Next three photos would be a nice theme for a small layout:

(If someone is interested, there are plenty more photos of the build at Delcampe's website)

Next I mentioned already but more views of the same super inspiring scene keep coming so the idea is scalating places in my list of things that could be

Now a small scene that is already a MUST:

Another MUST already in preparation:

This village scene you know already but more different spots keep coming up too so... :us:

I planned a similar scene as in next photo a long time ago just it will not be a horse but a donkey and instead of the closed van it will be a gate in a auto repair shop where the donkey refuse to enter:

Now back to the workbench:

I have been working a lot on these five trees since yesterday but, as with paintings, it takes a lot more than I can to catch the delicacy of the work in photos. So I took a lot varying the position of the trees and also the type and position of the lighting so to show how much that hide/reveal. But nothing except the lighting was changed to the trees between the first and the last shots.

I need feedback.
Not about the shape of the tree -the twigs should be curved and cut to fit and also the amount of leaves and the much too dark color of the red ones should be worked out- but about going green or red. (Just in case: No, I am not talking politics.)

Thank you in advance.

A third type of foliage (early Spring)

P2150323 (3) by Daniel Osvaldo Caso, on Flickr

Next all three at once so you can compare:

A fourth option would be to add to the last alternative fall foliage.
I have just removed from the aniline bath some I've prepared today and will put into the ove now.

(Don't tell Mr. Wallet: I have ordered a liter of glycerine for 13,50euro including post and will arrive tomorrow. God save my neighbors!!!)

The amount of work you’ve done on those lengths of raw wood doesn’t show, by which I mean they look natural. Personally I’d go with red/gold/brown but then I like the Autumn colours very much.

Shades of green would be my choice.

The red branches/leaves have a less open look to them, rather ‘heavy’. The green the most open with contrast between the leaves and the branches. Where on the layout will they be planted, which season does the surrounding vegetation suggest? L:

Yes, I see you are right, the more open green natural foliage looks a lot better.

Which season?

Hmm... :us: ... L: ... ??? ...

Originally it was going to be Spring. Later, noticing the foliage I have been using for more than a decade begins to show a bit of weathering, I thought I should better go for Summer >>> late Summer... Then, a few days ago, I fell in love with Autumn ... so probably winter must be coming!

:doh:

Actually I have no idea. :us:

Knowing nothing as I do, I assume it would be wise to enjoy making the trees I like the most now and if they doesn't fit this layout they will in next one or the next...

You look at me now in a way that makes me think I should make a separate Autumn diorama ...

What are you saying now?

An extension to the diorama with the corner street?

L: ... Hmm ... That could be an interesting option...

At this point the wise option is [toast]


I have made now five trunks and have balsa wood only for two or three more trees. Seven or eight trees would make a great Autumn diorama ... L: ...


... ... ...


... or a Spring one! :bang::bang::bang::sad:


Daniel, Mr. Magoo and Mr. Wallet
