As mentioned in the Paint Table Saturday post I've been working on some ruins lately. Actually for our Plancenoit club project but more or less for my own collection as well. So finally last Sunday morning I set up the airbrush equipment and spent two hours with spraying twelve horses for two British limber teams and two ruined buildings I assembled last week.
After lunch I started to paint one of the ruined wall pieces to experiment with different colours for the bricks and the plastered parts of the walls. The final result for the first pieve is this:
Actually I'm really happy with the result. I applied Vallejo Model Air (VMA) 'Hemp' as base colour for the plastered areas by airbrush and drybrushed it with Vallejo Model Color (VMC) 'Stone Grey' and 'Pale Sand' afterwards. For the bricks I used VMA 'Hull Red' as base colour and accented with different shades of red-brown tones. E. g. VMC 'Cavalry Brown' and VMC 'Red Leather'. Finally I gave them a light dust of VMC 'Pale Sand' to underline the edges of the bricks and to create a blending to the plastered area.
During the next days I'll work on the other pieces and I'll try to get some WIP steps photographed if you are interested in them.
