Absolutely fantastic job.
I added more trees and foliage.
When Tom finishes this thread I would like to nominate it and it's supplemental thread for The Academe. :thumb: :thumb:
Wow Tom, that looks GREAT! Purty darn realistic!
Please, no really, this is a compliment - PERFECTLY DENSE!!! It has that nice thick overgrown woodsy look to it, and yet it's not the "great green hairball that ate the layout" polyfoam look - too dense with no breaks in the canopy, IMO. AND, you've got a nice variety in color as well. So, great job and keep up the 'dense' modeling.
I like Galen's comments. I just hope that when I get to that stage, I receive similar responses, especially from Galen (since he drew up my trackplan)
Better and better Tom!!!:thumb:
The variety in color, texture, and placement...really crank it up to the next level. Everything just works!!!:thumb: :thumb:
Time to revive the mountainside layout construction.
First thing I worked on was the wall for the blue house.
I carved the mortar lines with a razor knife.
Next I painted the wall with Folk Art Light Gray.
Then using a brush I dabbed on the following colors in order (all Folk Art):
• Barn Wood
• True Burgundy
• Dark Gray
• Raw Umber
• Settlers Blue.
Then I did it a second time in the same order.
Next I went over the wall with a wash made from one part Raw Umber and one part blue windshield washer fluid.
After that dried I went over with a wash of one part Linen and one part blue windshield washer fluid. This time I wiped off the wash before it dried.
I also began coloring the road. This show the road painted with Dark Gray.
Tom that wall really looks AMAZING!!! I had no idea when I saw it in the photo fun thread that so many different colors and steps were taken!! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
