Carpenter bee

Carpenter bee - student project

started learning watercolor few months ago and learned how to paint a bee the first time from this class.  Did a carpenter bee instead of a bumble bee because we have a lot of those in our backyard and my son loves them.  I used gouache to "white-out" the head because it was way out of proportion at first, but didn't want to give up.  Will paint a bumble bee next.  Great lesson!
