    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Looks really nice. Have some good moves in there.

    This isn't a big deal, but just a little comment on the smearing of those stems, that going against the grain as it were is creating a saw tooth thing that doesn't serve the illusion and makes it look like a mistake in a couple places where it floats sidelong into thin air and then picks up again and repeats as opposed to following the flow of the stem or blade. That shows following a technique which I'm sure you were, rather than seeing what was happening with it. Were I doing what you intended, I would put marks that are going in different directions on different layers so that when you pulled the stems up it would hold the integrity of how it grows.

    Having said that, the overall looks very successful. And I love the daisies and how you played with the various greens. Really nice. And the blending as the base and in the sky is super.
