Alliums – again

by Helen White in Painting subjects
     
Bees on allium flowers painting
Alliums are a favourite subject of mine; I love their almost architectural form – perfect spheres made up (when you look more closely) of so many intersecting stars; they are like a metaphor for the whole planet and they catch the light so brilliantly. These favourites have already appeared in a number of my paintings, including Incandescence, Midsummer Eve and, now, Summer Bees as above. I am sure they will keep appearing again and again…
To find out more about the inspiration for this summer painting and how eleven bees found their way into it, take a dive into my post ‘Making Honey“.
