Cotswold Lavender Fields

The weather here in Gloucestershire was relatively mild for March, but has suddenly dropped sharply again. This has made me long for the warmth of summer, it’s fragrances and vibrant colours. I’ve been looking through some photos I took last June of the beautiful lavender fields at Snowshill, Worcestershire in the Cotswolds and thought I would share them with you.

The intense colour of the lavender reminds me of Provence and wonder why I have lived  a 40 mins drive away for over twenty years and yet have  never visited before.

I love the colours and contrasts in this photo and below is a quick sketch (made during the visit) of the same scene. I used my favourite White Nights watercolours and Inktense blocks on Khadi handmade Indian paper. I really love the texture and softness of this paper and will often take a small pack out with me rather than a sketchbook.

From the window of my studio, I can just see the first ridge of the Cotswold hills on the horizon. Here is a video of me trying to capture the beauty of the morning skyline:

After the watercolour I used Derwent Inktense blocks to draw back in & add some texture to the landscape.

P.S. This is the first time I’ve added a soundtrack onto a video. The music is ‘Punchbag’ by The Bees (apparently they make this music in a garden shed in Brighton!) The full version is here.

Also, if you’re interested to look at the Inktense blocks, you can see them here.
