This "Bee in Sand Dune Flora" is a unique style of fine art drawing. I used a traditional nib based pen and high quality lightfast inks on hand-made watercolour paper with an abstracted background.
Summer 2016, whilst painting in Ireland, I was at Curracloe Beach and took spectacular photos of the sand dunes. Whilst there I painted this cowslip flower and when back home in my studio I added the Bee to give a further dimension to this lovely piece.
This has been painted in Acrylic inks on specialist Two Rivers hand pressed 300GSM paper.
This piece is perfectly complimented by my other work "Butterfly in Sand Dune Flora". The landscape and abstract design in the background of both pieces were done together on location.
