This beautiful, square limited edition (only 100 available) print is of the third and final painting from my 'Bumbles in Flight' trio. All three have been designed to complement traditional or contemporary interiors with the highly detailed subject captured in a variety of aspects against three subtly different and contrasting abstract backgrounds.

We are often blessed with the low hum of the bumble in our English gardens, as they busily work to collect their pollen.

To create the fluffy mottled texture of this bumble’s fur, I have employed bold brush marks and smooth sweeping strokes to bring to life the motion of the subject’s wings. This aspect shows the fuzzy Bumble flying away with a delicate hover and playful energy. I particularly like the dark teal tones of this background contrasted with the subject’s bright and clean yellows and whites.

The Bumblebee is found primarily in higher altitudes or latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere although they are also found in South America, where a few low-land tropical species have been identified. Mostly social insects, they form colonies with a single queen, however these are smaller than those of honeybees, growing to as few as 50 per nest.

Bumblebees also feed on nectar, using their long hairy tongues to lap up the liquid pollen to feed their young. They forage using colour and spatial relationships to identify flowers to feed from. They are important agricultural pollinators; therefore, their decline is a cause for concern. This decline has been caused by habitat loss, the mechanisation of agriculture, and use of pesticides.

This print is reproduced on high quality pro-luster paper and is available as print only (28cm x 28cm), or mounted, ready for framing in antique white mount (40cm x 40cm). 

Please note: Colour varies from screen to screen and devices, colours are captured as accurately as possible.
