I have been getting back to my watercolours this week...sometimes I need to be inspired by a colour or something I see to really enjoy this watery and rebellious medium!
The plums are painted in my favourite colours for painting, I love juicy pinks, reds and purples.
This is a black bumble bee that I found resting on my garden wall. They are not particularly aggressive although they look quite frightening...it was the size of my thumb and very black and shiny.
When you get up close the black becomes a vivid blue in the wings. But I didn't get too near, I'm not that brave....I zoomed in with my camera and took some photos!
