"Living in the Luberon valley where there is a plethora of vineyards and olive groves there is not a lot of Lavender, as it likes the higher altitudes. But it is only a short 20 minute drive up through a gap in the mountains and there are lavender fields a plenty.
I must say that they are not the easiest thing to paint. As, up close, the color of the bloom is mostly gray. But as your eyes travel up to the horizon the lavender in the distant grows shockingly purple. The incredible purple that brings people from all over the world to gaze and appreciate." - Alice Williams
