This piece is part of the same project as 'Bumblebees', addressing the problem of decreasing bee populations. However, this print focuses on the effect a lack of bees would have on humans. The world would be sucked of its bright colours and natural beauty, leaving humans struggling to make enough food to survive. My print shows three beekeepers, surrounded by various beekeeping equipment, however, I haven't included the actual bees, making the figures look alienated, and more space-man like. I used the colours grey and black, as this reflects the colourless society we would live in without bees.
