I’ve started applying the first base colours to the model dry stone wall
To begin with I painted the entire length of dry stone wall a pale grey, to help pick out any imperfections. Next I taped a reference photo of dry stone walling, which I had downloaded from the internet, to the backboard. I realised from this that it was probably going to be easier to work from dark to light.
So I started the serious colouring, on a small end section of the wall, by applying a coat of dark grey (Not one of the ’50 Shades of Grey’ for the ladies, might I add). The following day I dry brushed a lighter grey over the top, leaving the dark grey to suggest the shadow areas.
