This is probably a Buff Tailed Bumble Bee feeding on Prairie Mallow.  We currently have 24 different species of bumble bee in Britain.  They are a large and furry insect with a distinctive buzzing sound as they fly.  Unlike Honey Bees they do not make honey as they have no need for a larder through the winter.  Instead, the queen will hibernate through the colder months and emerges in the spring to start a new nest.

This is an instant PDF download, you could start painting this Bumble Bee in a matter of minutes.  Indeed, there’s no need to even wait for the post to arrive.  You will receive a 33-page PDF document, set out in the same way as the tutorials I write for magazines.  However, you get lots more large photos of the different stages.

Downloadable lessons enable you to work at your own speed.  Firstly you can dip in and out of the content.  Secondly you can spend time studying the fine details and practise the various techniques as often as you like.

I really like to focus on the watercolour techniques needed to create a realistic painting.  Likewise, I love sharing this style of painting through my tutorials and hope I inspire others to create detailed wildlife portraits too.
