Jack and Jill

This is the first night scene I think I've ever painted. I realized that many of my pictures show sunsets (I love sunset colors) and that I should try something new. It was fun! The only thing that wasn't fun is the fact that I really don't like to paint grass. Does anyone else out there feel that way too? I always want to show more detail than just a green wash, but everything I try just doesn't look good . . . and then I settle for a semi-green wash. To complicate matters, just about everything I've been painting has grass in it! I've looked at the way other illustrators do their grass, but I can't seem to find my own way that I'm happy with. Oh well. If I figure out the secret, I'll let you know!
