"Bzzzz"-bee on flower watercolor

I'm currently participating in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge on Facebook. Coming up with subject matter can be a large part of the daily challenge; Wetcanvas's reference image library is sooooo very helpful with that! Thank you to coyotegal for "Bee on Cowpen Daisy", the photo I referenced for this piece! A fun challenge and sufficiently difficult (especially the wings and tiny hairs)! What you cannot see in the photo is the Winsor & Newton Irredescent Medium on the wings-looks awesome in the painting! Hand drawn, watercolor (with only the addition of the irridescence), various brand artist-quality paints, tiny at about 4.75" x 4.75" on CP paper (not sure what brand).

Re: "Bzzzz"-bee on flower watercolor

Thank you so much Johndk (I hope it was my painting that cheered you), Bertoni (Sweet ) and Arsinoé (Yes, doing a piece every day is truly a challenge-and I'm loving it)! I so much appreciate your wonderful comments and the encouragement!
