Another crispy morning in the marsh. I painted this in response to the Daily Paintworks challenge to paint grass. I actually like painting grass. It's a good thing to put in the foreground without looking too chocolate boxy. You can also easily add flashes of bronze (which I like to do) to catch the light. 

The inspiration photo actually is quite different, but I loved the colours of the trees outlined against the subtle blue/greys so I've retained the colour scheme more or less. I'm always fascinated by what inspires me to paint a scene and what inspires my patrons to purchase. They are not necessarily the same thing.
