    Revisiting a pic...

    I had started a pic about.... Half a year ago? but dueto homework, and presents... etc... i sort of forgot about it. (Old thread can be seen here:
    I went back to it, but i've been having a really hard time to do the ground and grass. Any suggestions?
    Attached is the pic with out grass, and with a quick try... as you can see it very much blends into the background.

    Depends on what you are looking for... one solid background would work if the grass were blended with what you have. But I think it would make your portrait really pop out if you found (ummm I don't have the correct technical terms but...) an extreme contrast to the light green on the right side.

    she is beautiful! And your color palette is just exquisite! I love that peachy pink rose color! wow. I am so sorry I missed your pic the first time. I sometimes forget to look here.
    About the grass... you can use a stencil like Jack made or there is a technique by Peter Pinckney also on painting grass.. probably in the tips and tricks section. Also as Silentman mentioned mr. Paint's stencil. That being said you could also take advantage of the naturally pointed oil brush and make some blades yourself... worth a try. I think the problem is that you need to turn on the instant dry button. This will allow you to paint without the strokes blending in to the paint already there and disappearing.
