Gardens & Parks, "Lone Lavender and Friend", by Lynn Cohen

It wasn't until I was drawing this that I spotted the tiny creature on the top third of this lone flowering lavender. He found a soft resting place on the velvety pedal of this beautiful flowering plant. They grow in large clumps in my back yard against the back fence, but I captured just one stem in the photo I took to draw from. And now I have added watercolor paint.

  1. Well I really liked the pen drawing alone, but this really has brought it to life with the colour :-)

  2. It has come to life with the color added. I like the previous as well. Nice job.

  3. I love flowering lavender plants. We have a few lavender plants and I love to brush up against them for the smell. :)) Nice job.

  4. This is such a pretty composition, Lynn! And the texture of the wood behind the beautiful bending flower is subtle and perfect.

  5. One sprig of lavender is a lovely sight. Nicely done Lynn!
