This is a rocked mezzotint plate burnished back to create highlights and tones and then finished with watercolour paint. The image was inspired by a hive of Bumblebees in my studio last year and more particularly, by the plight of all bees as suggested by the title. That it sold out at Buyers' Day at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2013 indicates that the image resonated with a lot of people. This is a second plate based on the original one.
