The landscaping continues...

So having left the plaster to dry overnight today was a painting day. 

Firstly I painted the soil a lightish soil colour having seen some photos showing how the underlying chalk affected the upper soil colour

Having painted the soils I then painted the cliffs some very light shades of grey and white. Initially my son asked me why I was painting my cliffs to look like Stilton rind so with this constructive criticism ringing in my ears toned it all down with a bit more white. I was really pleased with the final result, picking out some of the rocks with darker shades to try and  show up some of the geology.

Having some extra time I then started adding the scatter. A brown scatter first before then adding then some burnt green over the top.

Lots of hoovering in between scattering to clean up. Then using the clump scatter I started to create some shrubbery on cliff tops and the steep embankment.

(some of the clump scatter on the steeper bank to suggest larger vegetation.)

 

Now I have all but completed the the main landscape edges I can continue with the roads around the layout.
