More charm, although the bees look a little sharp and possibly ready to sting.
Don’t worry they are looking at the big fat roses and make other plans!
What a beautiful little drawing – and a reminder to us of how we need the bees…
It will be a less beautiful world without flowers – we do need bees! I hope we can help them make a comeback. I enjoy seeing them visit a flower. It is a critical part of how the world happens – just a tiny brief visit from a bee. Nice.
The hatching on those flowers is incredible!
It really is! I can feel the bees kind of hanging in the air thinking over their next landing spot: a nice big fat rose.
Thank you for letting me know you liked the artwork!
i love this!!!
So happy that you do!
The level of detail on this etching is incredible. I’d love to see it under a magnifying glass.
I’m glad this came out so well. It was very yellowed and faded. It has such beautiful details. Maybe I should hunt for old plates – they might survive better than the printed books! Now don’t encourage me in this – I don’t want another obsession. . . Oh no, I feel the tug of curiosity!
It is wonderful – glad to make your eyes happy!
Thank you for liking “Night Photography.” I also admire the level of detail work in this illustration. As a graphic artist, I learn a lot from looking at paintings and illustrations from the past as well as the present. I am glad that you are archiving vintage artwork from old picture books before they are lost forever. 🙂
Thank you – you understand me perfectly! Nice to have someone care.
Thank you very much. I suppose me as an archiver is too lofty – even though it is what I am doing!
I look forward to seeing many things at night!
