"The Shameful One"

Let it Bee

This painting of a bear turning into Honeycomb is unique in the Studio. I have never fixed a watercolor with wax before. One of my good friends suggested it as a way to fix and supercharge a watercolor. I had this beeswax on hand which I had helped harvest with my bee keeping mentor Delchi. I left thick wax at the bottom of the painting for context and texture. I love that it smells like honey.
