Buzzing Artistry: Drawings Showcasing Nature's Pollinators

Bees, those tiny but mighty creatures, have long captivated the hearts of artists and nature enthusiasts. Their essential role as pollinators and incredible diversity have made them a timeless source of inspiration. For the past two weeks, I've been fully immersed in portraying a captivating collection of selected Irish pollinators, including bees, flies, and one majestic moth. 

Soon, you'll have the pleasure of witnessing them come to life in a special poster that I've been working on. But in the meantime, I invite you to take a sneak peek into the process through the photos documenting the work in progress. Get acquainted with the following fascinating pollinators that grace the collection:

  1. Tawny Mining Bee (Andrena fulva)
  2. Early Bumblebee (Bombus pratorum)
  3. Red-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus lapidarius)
  4. Common Carder Bumblebee (Bombus pascuorum)
  5. Large Carder Bumblebee (Bombus muscorum)
  6. Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum)
  7. Ashy Mining Bee (Andrena cineraria)
  8. Marsham's Nomad Bee (Nomada marshamella)
  9. Brown-footed Leaf-cutter Bee (Megachile versicolor)
  10. Red Mason Bee (Osmia bicornis)
  11. Wool Carder Bee (Anthidium manicatum)
  12. Hairy-footed Flower Bee (Anthophora plumipes)

  14. Marmalade Hoverfly (Episyrphus balteatus)
  15. White-jawed Yellow-face Bee (Hylaeus confusus)

Each of these pollinators holds a unique place in Ireland's rich biodiversity, and my artwork aims to showcase their incredible beauty and contribution to our natural world.

Stay tuned as the grand reveal of the poster draws closer, where these fascinating pollinators will take centre stage :)
