To remove the body of the person in front of the grass, it will adjust the size of selection on the grassy area (combination of ALT key + right click the mouse to move the mouse). Press the ALT key + left click by placing the mouse on the grass to copy the grass. Move the mouse over the body of the person and make several clicks left (without the ALT key) to apply the stamp and make disappear the body of the person.
