This painting began with a simple acrylic undercoat, seen in the featured image above. It’s progressed slowly but steadily ever since.
Yesterday details of the Monarda flower (bee balm/wild bergamot) were added. Now the bees have a pretty target for all their attention! A little pollen was added to the bees’ bodies and the color of the pollen pockets on their hindlegs was adjusted.
Bumblebees and Bergamot is complete!
