How to Draw a Cute Bee with Life of Colour Watercolour Pens

Today we're showing you how to doodle a fuzzy bee, made by @laumoraiti.illustration.

You'll need Life of Colour Watercolor Brush Pens in yellow, light and dark brown, black and red.

You can add details with black Indian ink pens like microns and white details with gellyroll

These are her tips:

1️⃣ Draw the face with Indian ink pen and then paint an oval shape using the yellow watercolour brush pen

2️⃣ Use light brown to make a shadow, blend using the lighter color (in this case yellow)

3️⃣ While the base is still wet, make 2 to 4 stripes using the darker brown. Since the markers are water-based, you'll see how  the fuzzy texture begins to form

4️⃣ Add all the details you want! You can paint red cheeks, add the stinger, use the waterbrush to paint two translucent wings, small lights or shadows using white/black pens
