Lilacs in Lavender by Pat Yager

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I painted this one very hot, humid afternoon in Managua, Nicaragua, from a photo I’d brought along. Remembering its beauty from our garden in the cool of the spring, helped disguise the heat at least a little!

Watercolor painting on Arches 140 lb. cold press, using Daniel Smith paints.

Here is the link to my new calendar:


lilacs, purple

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    Very beautiful Pat :)))

  • Thank you, Elaine! You’ll have to come down from the “far north” of our state and meet some of Washington’s other watercolor artists – we’re beginning to get together!
