Clover Bee

Clover Bee
Watercolor on paper, 7x5

I seem to be fascinated by bees as of late!  I love the way they drift among the blooms - and they never bother me as I work on the flowers.  Once, while plein air painting near a hive, I had them landing and walking over my skin!  I stayed pretty still and just let them as I worked - and they didn’t sting me.  I did brush them off of my face though - I have to draw the line somewhere!  We have these large clumps of clover in the pasture - and the bees and butterflies alike flock to them.  I like the loose strokes of watercolor - and the way the colors mingle when dropped into the wet paint.  This painting makes 1197 in 1197 days.

  1. Beautiful painting. I love watching the bees on the flowers, but I am not so fond of wasps as they always make a bee-line (oops) for me and sting me! Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie
