Second Pass on the Grass

I remember in my early years the hopeless challenge of painting grass.
I've come to enjoy the challenge in my later years.
Painting it the way it "feels".
 Grass you want to walk barefoot in, grass you want to lay down and roll around in..
I'm starting to get it.

The Grass is Always Grayer

Back to the barns.
 I was feeling not so good about this until I worked in the shrubbery. 
It looked tight and stiff, but it is wood after all.
Now I'm getting the good  opposing "structure and nature" feeling that I was looking for.
The canvas is filled.


Not So Sure

 The more I do, the less I'm liking this one. 
It seems large canvases provide me the opportunity the get too controlled and tight. 
But, the struggle will continue. 
I see things I can do to loosen it up, and there's a lot of blank canvas that will change hopefully things.
