I worked on the grassy field background a bit more, adding in more details and got it to a place where it looks pretty good. I'm happy with the result.
Another shot of the grassy field, but will be used for a closeup.
Ideally one background a day would be good, but I'm not setting any goals other than to consistently put work into the project, alleviating the workload come next year. No doubt there will be some exploratory color designs in the coming days which will slow down production, but it must be done to achieve the look I am striving for.
