Enjoy a wildlife art workshop drawing bees!
Beginner artists and nature enthusiasts can explore the world of bees and bee art through bee drawing workshops, alongside artists wishing to improve their art skills and discover more about the wildlife world of bees!
This wildlife drawing of a honey bee was initially created as a quick sketch in preparation for a bee show.
The original rough sketch had been done and, with a few colours applied to give an impression, it was left only partially coloured and a very rough version of what had been planned for a complete drawing of a bee.
Before it was completed, however, several enquiries had been made, asking to purchase the rough bee drawing and, eventually, this bee was created but not before several hours of research into the anatomy of bees had been carried out!
It was a good experience, though, because it provided the necessary information to get on and draw bees - their little bodies are simply filled with anatomical complexities which they rely on to carry out good work around the world - bees really are quite fascinating!
The original bee sketch was based on a European Honey Bee (Apis mellifera). It was done as a traditional vintage drawing or illustration of a honey bee and is Apis mellifera : One. More on their way!
