Flowers and Wings

Last summer I was challenged to draw a bee on an Allium flower. Having never drawn a bee before, and never an Allium (all those tiny flowers!), it certainly was a challenge.

 

But the end result was quite pleasing, and I decided to delve further into the wonderful word of flower art with the added bonus here and there of winged creatures as and when the mood takes me - or something pretty happens to alight on a flower in my garden. Using these bright colours makes a nice change from the more muted tones of animals.

So although there are only a few offerings here, I will definitely be adding to the bouquet as time goes by. So keep checking back to see if there's anything you like, or request something special for that someone special.

To start off this new page, here is the Bee on Allium that is now available as a Limited Edition print.
