This delightful watercolour and ink painting of pink cherry blossom flowers and a honey bee is part of a set of four bee and flower paintings that will be available later in the year. More bee painting workshops and flower drawing workshops will also be available soon.
It was painted as a loose watercolour wash, which involves applying wet paint into wet water to give its flowing, gentle appearance. Special walnut ink was applied over the dried watercolour paint, to create a delicate whimsical line and finishing touch to the painting.

This type of botanical art work and wildlife bee drawing are representational and need not encompass very detailed aspects of the plant or wildlife, whilst remain recognisable.
It is one of the styles of art that lends itself to children's book and text illustrations as it allows for imaginative depictions of wildlife and nature. It balances the more detailed botanical drawings and wildlife paintings.
Wildlife and botanical watercolour and ink art workshops available in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex; please email for more details about forthcoming bee drawing and flower painting art workshops and classes.
