79) Uplands, Furrows by Janine Pinion, companion to 79bee, Lasioglossum calceatum, the Common Furrow Bee

180 GBP

I was intrigued by the burrowing habit of this largely solitary bee, which is common in open land. I decided to reflect the landscape of foothills and uplands, where thistle and ragwort can be seen providing nectar to this Furrow Bee. As primarily a painter of light, I imagined the dark tunnels of the furrows and nests underfoot and these are indicated in the foreground.

Watercolour

Companion to Lydia’s 79bee - seen in the last picture.
