When visiting the lavender fields in Provence, there are always a certain number of them which seem to be abandoned and left to go wild. This always fascinates me - maybe it's the chaos amongst the order of the normally straight rows that intrigues me.

I first painted a similar scene last September see HERE. I have someone interested in a larger version but with more poppies in the front, so, never needing an excuse to paint the lavender fields, I decided to try a couple of versions. This is the first one and still needs some more work to make the fields recede more.
