Lavender Whispers

Lavender Whispers

Whispers of lavender in watercolour. Simple, loose watercolour sketches. I picked some lavender from my garden and took it to my studio. I selected what I felt were the right watercolour pigments from my collection. I chose Daniel Smith’s Lavender, Carbazole Violet and Cascade Green – they were just right for the paler shade of lavender in my garden. Just simple sketches but much fun to do…

  1. I haven’t visited you for a while, Evelyn, and I am amazed how brilliant you have become at watercolour! This little sketch is quite exceptional. I love how some of the flowers fade into the background. It may be loose, but you’ve got a lot of detail in there, too. It’s just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Shoshi. I’ve missed you… ! I’ve been a bit hit and miss with blogging for a while but hoping to get back into blogging more regularly now. Watercolour is still my passion and I’m improving steadily. I love your new blog – very stylish…

      1. Thanks, Evelyn! And thank you for your visit. One day I’ll get round to working on the whole WordPress site but I ran out of steam when I couldn’t get it to work how I wanted! At least the blog is working OK. Glad you like my teabag stains. Did you see my watercolour doodles, too? They were a huge amount of fun to do.

  2. Lavender is so pretty and delicate, and your watercolor is gorgeous! I’ve photographed mine so many times, but would love to paint it, if I could. Thank you for sharing your lovely hand art.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and observations...
