|This is the second painting of the series. The third painting is in progress. Since it wasn't my idea, and it involves perspective and some other things, it will be awhile before I get it done. Prodding always makes me take longer on a project "/|
|This is my newest Leaf Dragon. I am obviously having fun with my new watercolors here :)|
|Grass King is my newest scene. Also done in water colors. I thought about doing a wash first, started painting the scene, and then decided to forgo a wash. I was having fun and when I was done, that was it.|
|Made this today for a lady that took Megs and I around a week or two ago. I have to return some stuff to her, so this is going with the returned stuff.|
More on the 'lawn'. Here they put down a layer of sweet sand (in other words it's clean, no salt) and then put plugs of grass (often Bermuda grass) in it. So water intensive grass is planted in quick draining medium. Interesting... This way of planting calls for several hours of watering in the morning and in the afternoon. Having grown up in water rationing areas and this being desert and all, I keep cringing. However, since they use desalinization plants for water, I'm told "Don't worry, this is the way they do it here." It's still hard not to cringe...
Have a great day!
