Spend a quiet moment in the garden and studio with me and a sketchbook. We’ll start with observation of the plant in its environment, then we’ll draw and paint some lavender flowers together, using several different methods. Finally we’ll use spatter and loose watercolour techniques to complete a beautiful spray of Lavender, complete with two honey bees.

Lavender is so elegant and beautiful

If you want more video of the lavender visit our YouTube channel “From The Garden” where we have started to put content about our little druidic garden to help you to paint from nature even if you don’t have easy access to the natural world.
