Potted Blue Lavender in Watercolor.
This painting was inspired by one of my favorite watercolor artists, Andrew Geeson. I love Andrew’s loose style and his fun Youtube tutorials. I like to watch him do it, and then walk away and try to create it in my own way. Mine usually look quite different, but that is the beauty of everyone’s personal style.
I love the smell of lavender! For my soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Liz’s bridal shower, her sister made favors for everyone of lavender sugar scrub. I use it almost every day! She made it from coconut oil, sugar, and lavender essence. It is so heavenly to rub between the palms and fingers of my hands and on my feet, making everything so much softer and smelling beautiful.
Lavender can also be used in gourmet cooking. I’m excited to try a recipe one of Liz’s aunts has made for the wedding cookie table. She made earl grey tea bread with lavender butter! Doesn’t that sound amazing?!
So no wonder I am thinking of lavender. I think I will look into buying a lavender plant and seeing how well it does in my little corner of the world.
In the meantime, I thoroughly enjoyed painting lavender in watercolor with a short little half hour break at life in between.
Cheers & Hugs,
