For better or worse, the Willamette Valley Lavender Festival painting fest is over. A few artists (those who don’t have to report to work on Monday) may continue to paint for a few days, but for this toiling artist, lavender painting days are over.
On Saturday, I once again joined friend Sandra Pearce to go to my final destination: Red Ridge Farms. While they had a lovely lavender patch, it’s the view over the Yamhill wine country that will take your breath away.
Because I wanted to paint this, and there was no lavender in site, I decided to use my imagination and used artistic license to add some lavender to the scene.
For example, I added gouache to finish out this painting.
I also adjusted the “bloom” on this painting.
As a recap, here is the list of possibles.
So, which ones did I choose?
Do you think I made the right choices?
