Shoot it, Sketch it: Lavender & Chive flowers

My Shoot it, Sketch it post is a wee bit different this week. The painting I did below was done on a canvas to put above our fireplace and was inspired by the vase of flowers I had just picked. So it isn’t an exact replica but was the inspiration behind it. This is usually where most of my ideas come from so I thought it would be nice to share it today! Inspiration is all around us and can pop up at any time! Remember to leave a comment below if you’re joining in Shoot it, Sketch it! xo Bec
