Bumblebee in Winter

You can even see his little tongue!

I chose to paint some bees over the holidays as there seems to be a lot of the little guys around. There was one lying on the ground exhausted in front of where we live, so we took him in and fed him sugar syrup from a spoon to give him a bit of a boost to get where he was going.

These winter bees were done on cold pressed and Yupo watercolour paper using Indian ink and watercolours and both are available in my shop.
