03/2018 watercolour on ink lineart, 17.5 x 20.5 cm

March special illustration for my Patreon - my Patrons picked out wisteria and bluebells as the theme for this one. So I went wild with purple and blue.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ On my Patreon, you can also take a look at concept sketches and WIPs and also download a lineart of this one in case you’d feel like colouring it by yourself.

No need to get it that poetic, it's just purple.

I trust you as the artist, but with expressed doubt. I am allergic to lavender and just looking at this for a while gets me itchy under the fingernails, so whether intended or not you captured it well.

There's no lavender in it, though. That's wisteria and bluebells.

I must have multiple afflictions.

On a serious note, though, was under the impression "murasaki" was the generic Japanese name for plants with blue or purple florets, usually translated as "lavender" - both the plant and the colour. If that is not the case, then I learn something new today.

There are two kanji with Kun reading "murasaki", out of which one is obsolete and I've never seen any modern use of it. This title is after the other kanji, 紫, which is pretty common (still included in the 2500 of most used kanji), and all it means in basic reading is just "purple" and nothing more. The only other Kun reading for that kanji is a name for a plant used in medicine and fabric dying. You can add some other stuff to that kanji and maybe you'll get what you've described, but personally I haven't seen that in use either.

Then I learn something new today. Or rather, a couple of days ago when I had time to check but not answer correspondence.
