Lavenders | The Unfathomable Artist


“Lavenders” [7th August 2022] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist, drawing with HB, 4B and 8B pencils, signed in black ink on 280gsm 250mm x 300mm gesso primed canvas [pad], digitally edited image 3178 x 2694 pixels.

I made “Lavenders” within 50 minutes. Keeping the composition and drawing simple, yet beautiful on the canvas.

If you look very closely at the detail with a magnifying glass or zoom in on the artwork with a computer or smartphone, the pencil work looks superfine. I didn’t wish to add further detail to “Lavenders”. Primarily as the idea replicates dried flowers and plants pressings you see stored in horticultural books.

A dried pressings effect is exactly the way I wanted this artwork to look, having recently viewed same on social media.

Here is the photograph providing the inspiration:

“Lavenders – Photograph” [1st August 2022] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist.

The photograph is wonderful.

Another conceptualisation I like about “Lavenders” is this artwork could be wheat. Wheat, barley and maize, oh how I love these crops! Completely fascinated by their beauty and taste as a food. In likeness to how people delight at the scent of lavender.

If someone asked me to describe “Lavenders” in one word, I would say… delicious.
