I love the colouring of the bee eaters. For this one, I decided to go for a more mottled background effect which works really well.
Little Bee - Eater's are found in much of sub Saharan Africa. It is Africa's smallest Bee - Eater measuring only 15 - 17 cm in length.
Little Bee Eater measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches Watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Derek Keats for the reference photo.
