Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink

This piece was a lot of fun to paint. I was going to clear some thistles from a section of our Garden last Summer when I noticed that so many bees were working on them. Needless to say I decided not to clear the thistles until the autumn. Instead I took some photographs and set about painting these beautiful insects at work. Much of the painting was painted wet into wet and creamy into damp. I used a whole selection of brushes from small detailers for the fluffiness to long rigger brushes to describe the thistles. Finally I used larger round brushes for the larger shapes and splashes. If I had to recommend any colour at all to add to your pallet it would be Opera Rose by Winsor and Newton for those gorgeously vibrant pops of pink!
