After three bumblebee-drawings I realized I had only drawn this (former) flying beasty on its
back with its legs up in the air. How about those wings?!
And how beautiful they are. So much detail, such beautiful reflection and shininess, how
were these delicate slivers of ‘paper’ ever able to keep this bumblebee up in the air?
All my drawings up to now of the found insects have been in Indian ink (on Saunders Waterford
watercolour paper) but I would like to add some colour too.
Back to the drawing board!
