A beautiful bumble bee flew into the studio last week and got itself quite worked up before it found the door again. I really wanted to paint it but did not have time then so had to wait until today and store the idea. A bit more to do to this yet.
There is an enormous elder in the churchyard at the back of our cottage and it is the first thing I see when I open the curtain in the morning. Every day there are at least two equally large wood pigeons perched in it looking like they might topple out at any moment. Detail from an oil in progress in the studio.
