Paraphrasing 2001 A Space Odyssey, this is how I feel. I have been painting what is just the first step in a multiple step process for the majority of the background of "Never Sleep in a Fairy Ring II; Gathering the Elixir of Priapis". If I had remembered how much of a pain it was to do the grass this way in the first one, I would have charged the person who commissioned this ALOT more money! I am seeing grass leaves in my sleep now and I am only about 2/3rds done with this first step! ARRGGGHHH!
This is a slightly blurry detail of what I am doing. This is about a 3 inch square of a 16 x 20 inch picture.
