A Bumblebee on a pink foxglove
Foxglove Bumblebee

30 x 30 cms oil painting on cotton canvas panel
Painted by applying thick impasto oil paint using a painting knife
Original reference photograph is one of two supplied by childhood friend Karen T during a coffee time catch-up - I was telling her about my pollinator series, and she instantly showed me this stunning photograph she had taken close to her home in Scotland. I was completely smitten by her gorgeous photograph and couldn't wait to start painting it.
