I was whingeing recently in my comments on Geoff's excellent article on good yard textures about how difficult it was to recreate colour from black and white photos.
It is typical therefore that almost immediately afterwards I found this set of colour photos of Llanrhaiadr Mochnant.
£15 for each high definition download is a bit steep if you ask me but even the preview versions have provided me with some useful information. I'm glad I found them now rather than in a year's time because they've corrected my understanding of a few points. In a particular I'm really pleased to find this shot of the shed with the fuel pump next to it. I think it will make a nice cameo.
I'm certainly a lot happier now I know more about the colour of the goods yard and after another couple of washes I think I'm getting closer to the right effect. I need to do something about the vegetation around the edges. It would appear to need to be a darker green than the grass behind it and more weed than grass.
