It comes in green too

This weekend is all about assembling dozens of minis, and for a break, painting Burn In Designs buildings for several hours!

I thought I would start snapping some pictures of one of the structures as I painted it

I had already done a lot of the exterior walls.  Like the train station, white and green would be the main colors.  It would be reversed however, with white trim and green walls.

I was using the same artificial filbert style brush, as you can see.

You can also see that the walls were not done as one solid surface.  There's a lot of variation in the shades and tones.

I even mixed a deep red with the darkest greens to make sure that the green didn't get too far away from the browns of the floors and other elements.

You can see the white trim beginning to take shape!

Here's a peek at the interior.  Wooden planks, grayish white walls.

I will have a number of advertising posters and fun things inside to spice up those walls!

The floorboards of the front porch are painted in after all the greens.

You can see the variety of colors that I have on hand.  Since I am working in such a small area, it's easy to work rapidly enough to be able to blend it wet into wet!

Front porch almost complete!

I also added some browns and tans to the bottom sections of the outer walls to represent some dust being kicked up.

The roof of the porch was done in simple grays and browns to match the shingles that I was painting on the main roof.  

Stay tune for part two tomorrow!!!
