The painting of grass has always intrigued and baffled me. Unfortunately the fact that it baffles has kept me from painting it much. But I’m out to change that! Recently I was trawling the ‘hood for scenes to paint and came across this wild clump of grass in someone’s front yard. The light was great and I was totally inspired but I didn’t have my plein air gear, so I snapped a photo. As I was painting the grass today it occurred to me how interesting it would be to see some other takes on grass. So your challenge this week is to paint a grass-centric painting. Feel free to use my photo, or one of your own. And if it’s wild grass from your own yard, fess up! Just kidding. Have fun!
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
