Big Bee

 Now see what that bee started? 
You were all so complimentary and encouraging with your comments that I did another one....
 
 
This time a big bee inspired by a cushion I saw on Pinterest. It allowed me to paint a little more detail like the tiny hairs on his/ her legs.


But I'm not very good at doing wings so these are digital wings printed on Vellum and the veins painted over... In case you are wondering, I use a lovely paint brush by Pro Arte (from Amazon) that allows me to add fine detail. 


A mix of painted flowers and leaves with a couple of fabric ones thrown in, some rhinestones and a great deal of satisfaction. I hope you like it, sharing again at Double D Challenges



Have a Bee- utiful day

I've been meaning to come back and comment on this wonderful large bumble bee Ros and I adore the vellum wings to which you added the veins and it looks so realistic with all the little hairs painted in and love the added flowers painted in the background and added for dimension. Absolutely gorgeous!! x

Pauline said...

Wow! Stunning BEE! Ros, when I first saw it I thought it was a sticker of some sort and then I continued to read to find out you drew it! So much detail, utterly amazing! Another masterpiece Ros! Sorry for commenting so late, found some time to get my blog reading caught up. Hope you are keeping well!

Nothing says summer more than this card. You really get into the swing with your bees, this is a beauty, too! I really admire your talent and the vellum wings (though I do think "yours" are good, too) of course add dimension which caused another "oh, look at that!" on my part.
