Bombus hypnorum, on the drawing board

I have almost finished this little hypnorum, the pretty Tree Bumble Bee.  I have some more details to add to the lower half of the image, just something to personalise this painting for Caroline who has commissioned it. It is always so nice to be able to add something which makes a painting that bit more special.

Monday, the bee

Tuesday, the cherry blossom
