Best way to spend a weekend in a very hot Netherlands and to clear your mind.
Used a gray base primer and worked up with various layers of Vallejo acrilic paint. Added real fine sand to give the base a more natural look and used a mixture of wood glue and water to fixate. Added small stones (shifted from the sand) to add more shape and color to the base. Added fibers to give the idea of grasses around it (of course they are yellow because of the contaminated soil around the barrels). Barrels have a few bullet holes with oil leaking out. The rust is first applied rough and smothed out with a light wash. A few other washes added more time and decaying to it.
Hope you like it.
