30 x 30 cms unframed oil painting on cotton canvas panel
Painted in impasto oil paint using a painting knife
Inspiration: The original reference photograph for this painting is one of two supplied by my childhood friend Karen T during a coffee-time school friends' reunion. I was telling her about my pollinator series, and she instantly started showing me the stunning photographs she had taken close to her home in Scotland. This shot of the foxglove and bumblebee was absolutely stunning.
Within a day or so of our meeting, I flipped Karen's original image from left to right and started painting!
