Last week in my Weekly Studio Sketchbook Club, we created this beautiful spread of Bees & Beehives and when I posted it on Instagram, I was literally inundated with requests for this to be the next online module.

As it has also just been National Bee Day, I couldn’t see how I could possibly I refuse!

I really think that this makes one of my all-time favourite sketchbook spreads.

I hope you enjoy this module as much as we all did, don’t forget to use the hashtag #SketchbookClubBees so I can see them all.

I really can’t wait to see all your Bees, have fun and Happy National Bee Day!
