Humble Bumble

Humble Bumble

Yes a much more honourable subject than old scrap Fiona. :-). Beautiful

A lovely pastel Fiona, you have done a beautiful job of the bee

Lovely tribute to the "humble" bee, Fiona. What a state they are in, we should look after them a lot better than we do.

A lovely loose and fresh feel to this Fiona, and I think the colours really stand out against the brown of the sugar paper!

Thank you Dennis, Kirstie, David, Sharon and Chandra very much for your comments.

Beautiful work Fiona, it stands out in the gallery.

You have taken nature and enhanced it, beautiful work Fiona.

Hang on Studio Wall

16"x12" pastel on sugar paper. I'm rather fond of the bumble bee, I did this quick sketch from a photo I took of the Great Yellow Bumble Bee. Probably our rarest bee and can only be found in the Scottish Islands and in some small pockets along the north coast. I found this chap and many more, feeding amongst the Machar behind Strathnaver Museum. I haven't done it justice at all because it's a beautiful large bee and very fluffy, if you see one you will want to take it home with you and give it a name! lol It's also the 10th anniversary this year of the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust.
