While this painting had no particular focus in terms of technique, I wanted to create a visceral experience for the viewer. In doing so I utilized different sizes of brushes and different techniques such as removing pigment and adding water to create a lighter effect. I wanted to really bring out the texture and give the viewer a feeling of being up close to a honey bee.
