Here is map showing the area in the immediate vicinity of a village that I'm detailing. (I'm creating a customized write up of a Forgotten Realms area.) The area is not very interesting geographically, being primarily grasslands. I tried to give the map more visual interest by using the grasslands fill instead of just a solid color. I did the same with the cultivated areas to add contrast.

A month ago I would have been pretty happy with it, but since coming on here and seeing what the experts are doing, I'm a lot less satisfied with my maps. Any suggestions?
