Bumble Bees


I've been practising bees off and on over the last month or so. The ones I'm happiest with are the looser ones.

Today I followed a tutorial by de Winton Paper Co, which I enjoyed very much because she has a lovely, relaxed way of teaching. Also, I really enjoyed the loose bees.

For the bees I used Cadmium Lemon, Paynes Gray, Lamp Black and Titan Buff.

The lavender is Windsor Blue (green), French Ultra Marine and Sap Green. I should have made the blossoms more purple 'cause they're very blue but ... next time!

All in all I like this little painting. It was very simple to do so if you like it too then you might want to check out the tutorial above.

Happy painting!
