More French Country "Lavender"

Hi Guys, Woohoo, I am excited today with my new idea for another French Country painting. I was thinking and dreaming of it all night. So I was up bright and early and did some sketches and my next painting will be the lavender flowers “Lavande” in French. I just love lavender and the smell! And its color and also the beautiful colors of Provence. So my next painting will be Lavender stems- tied in string in a nice French Style "country" galvanized pail with the words "Lavande" on the frong and the colors of Provence(yellow/strong-coblat blue) for the background.

Here is my sketch - painting from my imagination. No rference pictures except for some of my old galvanized pails and the little scrauny lavendar plant I purchased yesterday.

What do you all think of it? I am excited to start the painting.

Ps. I am gone French Country crazy..I tell you. Must be my strong French roots shinning thru my blood..LOL
