The easiest way to draw a bee, is to focus on creating some very simple shapes and getting the proportions right.

You can complete this drawing just using pencils or, if you want to add colour, use coloured pencils in black, grey, yellow, orange and red. This is part of a step-by step series of drawing guides for beginners.

Bees have varied markings, depending on whether they are a Queen, worker, male or female. There are several parts to their anatomy: the head and eyes, thorax (centre), abdomen, antennae, wings and six legs.

If you want to be really accurate, see if you can observe some bumblebees and note their markings.
