Lavender Fields

Lavender Fields

In the winter, the famous French lavender fields don’t have much color. All the pretty flowers have been picked, and what’s left are short, grayish bushes about 30 cm high.  This year, it was very dry, and many fields were renewed, meaning the small plants were taken out, and the land was plowed. Now, we see fields with a reddish-brown color and lots of small stones.

Sometimes, farmers leave a field with tall, dry grass that looks kind of golden. The black trees with branches covered in mistletoe make a nice contrast here and there.

The sketch was a study for a small oil painting that I will finish once I return home.
