Here you will see me adding the paint for the soil.

I used a mixture Of white and tiny bit of Venetian red. The red is a strong pigment, so if you use it you have to be very careful. If you don;t have it use what you do have, maybe burnt Sienna with a bit of red

Step Three - spattering the soil
05:46

Here comes the exciting bit, adding the lavender.

As I saw on my visit to see the famous lavender fields of Provence, France, they come in lots of different colours.

I used a paint which was called violet by Sennelier or you can mix a red and a blue it depends what you have. Make sure you use a warm red and blue or it might come out a bit muddy.

Step Four - painting in the lavender
09:33

Time to take off the masking fluid on the horizon and put the distant trees in.

Step Five - appraisal and do distant trees.
06:52
Step Six - tree and inishing off.
