70) Cutting through Heathland by Stevie Davies, companion to 70bee, Coelioxys elongata, the Dull-vented Sharp-tail Bee
I’ve used my signature technique, “Interfused Glass”, to represent a number of key elements from the research information about the Dull-vented Sharp-tail Bee. Colours and shapes reflecting the varied habitats including heathland, woodland and coastal dunes. I have also placed small nuggets of glass within some of the voids to highlight how this species use their pointed tail to cut open the cell wall of a host nest to lay its own eggs. The pen drawing is inspired by an aerial photograph of mainland Britain, highlighting gardens as well as the rides and clearing of woodlands.
