Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Cowleaze garden progress

Well, the garden has been dug and the bean poles are up……

The soil as described before is a mix of filler, sawdust and PVA which has then had 4 or 5 washes of watercolour.. A mix of neutral tint, Chinese White and burnt umber with a dash of raw sienna. The paths are covered in fine sieved chinchilla dust rubbed down with emery cloth when dry and then toned in with weathering powder.

The bean poles are made from fine stems from a willow screen hiding the oil tank in our garden!

All that needs to be done now is plant all the various vegetables that I have been producing off site.
