And I like to thank Frederic for pointing me to photopaint, it's indeed a bit easier to work with....



but now with 4.30 on the clock I should close my eyes for a few hours....

I use the Hooker's Green a lot (also often called Sap green in artists colors), and mix it to submission. in it's raw state it is quite similar to the color of your Lpton van, but with a little naples yellow or maples yellow red(dish), or a brown mixed in, you can alter it to taste easily. It is used in 99 percent of the greens on my layout, except for the permanent green I use in my seawater mixes...

I have to agree with Troels.... The color of the van
fits closest to the color I am trying to explain....
Windsor Green, would be darker than that.....Thanks Troels! ;-)

Only if that's what you want. I give my advice freely.
Just have fun with it, after all....


It's only make-believe

Well the only way to find out if you like green trims is to add some



sapgreen with a dash of napels yellow redish and some brown...light drybrush with titanium buff light..still have to cover up the cutting edge..

Dont know if it's the titanium white but it leans a bit to the blue, at least on my screen.

I forgot to say that the hill with all the vegetation is a beauty.

Thanks Frederic, think it does tend a bit to blue, not from the titanium buff but more I think because I sanded it a bit with 120 grit. Our house has been painted 5 years ago with a dark green (leaning to hookers green) paint and in a certain light when I drive on to the driveway it looks more like a blueish green now.
And I'm very satisfied too with the vegetation, after this first coat of noch fibers I only used Polak material for it, besides the longer dry grasses they are from a whitening brush...
