Original Watercolour Painting of a Bumblebee with Fine Art Detail
This is probably a Buff Tailed Bumblebee feeding on Prairie Mallow. We currently have 24 different species of bumblebee 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.
Painting size 16.3cm x 16.5cm or 6.4” x 6.5”
Paper size 31cm x 23cm or 12.2” x 9.1”

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.
The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing. Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me. I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.
A bit about me!
I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail. I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
