Bees 3 by Amy Crook

Bees 3, 6″x6″ pencil, brush & ink, watercolor, and Primatek watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper


It’s been almost a year since the first bees buzzed over during Inktober.

This trio of bees are painted in a beautiful gold-infused grey ink, and paired with a paint made of real bronzite mineral that has its own subtle sparkle. The deep honey-gold evokes an unfiltered local honey, full of flavor and goodness.

Above, you can see a detail of the uppermost bee, with the gold in the linework catching the sunlight along its body. Below, the bees are buzzing around their frame like they’re at home in a hive box.
