93) Yellow Shouldered Bee Flight Paths by Rowena Payne
My watercolour shows the imagined private world of the Yellow Shouldered Bee, on its pollen and nectar search through vegetation by a riverbank. It feeds on willow catkins, lesser celandine, dandelion and flowering blackcurrant. I’ve symbolised these with interconnected abstract shapes and sweeping brush marks symbolising a bee ‘pathway’ to nectar filled flowers. There is a significant amount of yellow as it is a Yellow-shouldered Bee and I’m imagining a sunny day. I think you can guess by vibrant spring greens and exuberant brush marks, which season we are experiencing, yes, you’re right! - Spring - March to May, when this wasp-like bee works its hardest.
