Just Magnolia Challenge 3

I really wanted to join in last weeks just magnolia challenge but time ran away from me so i didn't get chance. This weeks challenge however, is a fab sketch. I just got my hands on the dragonfly Tilda, but it does lend itself to being a bee also which inspired the yellow colour scheme. I had originally done this image with darker shades of yellow and black and blue but i broke the cardinal rule in my rush to colour the image..... I did the black first which bled into the yellow and that was a ruined image, so learning my lesson i took more time on this one and followed the basics of lightest colour first and bingo done in no time at all.

Sorry for the dark image, its gray and raining cant get it any brighter.
