Draw Lavender with Watercolor Techniques
Gather your supplies.
Try lettering lavender to warm up your hand. This is faux lettering.
Practice a few watercolor techniques that you'll use. To make some drop shapes, push your brush while you hold the tip still.
Lazy stippling is when you tap, drag, and slide your tip over the page.
1
And a few stems with or without leaves. Just use the tip for these.

Now, think about lavender and how you want your drawing to look. Here are some ideas to get you started.
And a reference photo from my own lavender patch.
Draw lavender in pencil first. Then trace the lines with a micron pen.
3
Paint a loose watercolor background in light green for the first paint layer.
4
When it's dry, add some drop petal lavender blooms to a few stems.
5
I'll speed it up to show you the rest.
Now a little lazy stippling in real time.
6
Maybe just one more.
7
Time to paint some stems (mine are without leaves).

And you're finished!
If you like painting blooms, you might like drawing bees and chamomile.
