It still wasn't quite as nice as hers but I sort of like how the ground looked and took the paint. It was very similar to this painting.
I think I will be experimenting back and forth with this method as well as the more traditional method of just adding a tone of thinned paint.

I just can't leave well enough alone. As I do frequently, I try to get away from any painting I do and then try to come back to it with a fresh eye. There were a a couple of things that were bothering me and my wife mentioned some things that I had to agree with, so --- I went back and tweaked those things.
I think it helped. Even thought the color is off a bit from the first shot.
See if you can spot those tweaks.
