Painting the Lavender Field


Joined Peninsula Art League painters at the Blue Willow Lavender Farm in Vaughn, WA near my home.  (check out their excellent website) Haven't painted en plein air for a long time and clearly it will take more practice before the results are more about the location and mood rather than about how to apply the paint!  These young lavender fields are neat as a pin, not messy like my rendition.  Good thing the farm proprietors are very accommodating, I'll just have to go back to paint another day.
