Blackstone at Kimmeridge Bay

A painting completed for the Fifty Bees 3 exhibition taking the Broad faced furrow bee Lasioglossum laticeps as inspiration
The small black bees are found from Seaton to Kimmeridge Bay, living in seepage holes in south facing soft cliffs of sand, shale and clay, making their homes a bit unstable. The bees have been affected by the loss of foraging habitats in the flower rich cliff-top grasslands through farming and human activity. At Kimmeridge the Blackstone oil shale workings have put extra pressure on their habitat.
My painting is inspired by the diversity in the bees’ lives in the soft crumbly cliffs, including seaweed, sea spray and coastal plants, along with hot balmy days and fierce storms.
