Lavender Fields in Red - At Least I Think It's Red

“Lavender Fields Study”
9” x 12”, Acrylic on Canvas Board
© 2009

I'm pretty much lavender, purple, and violet color challenged. So, I changed and saturated the colors of the reference photo in Photoshop Elements to where I was comfortable with what I saw. Using the PSE image, I gave myself permission to paint this radically tweaked landscape.

I'm looking forward to painting a 30" x 40" version of this study. The interpretation of the lavender in the larger version will be a bit more blue.
