Part 6 ~ M i d s u m m e r



Chapter 31 ~ " P a r a d e s t r e c k e "

(July 2020)


Midsummer 2020, I focused largely on the parade track in the front.

Starting May 13th with new gravel near the man track in front, the socalled 'parade track' of 'Paradestrecke'

July became the month of truth.



Since Busch changed the composition of Herbstaue 1305 - as Mr. Jörg Vallen stated in a private message -

I decided to try Busch 1301 Dry Grass on his advice.  

At first sight it looks like sponge.



However, paint and vegetation material are at hand, besides a lot of imagination and patience!



July 9th & 10th







After some 30 years, this old treetrunk must be removed to give way for new vegatation.







A week later, I continued with the edges and a small tree...  



I painted the other sheet of Busch 1301 in advance, to avoid difference in colour. At the right side you can still see the original.




After a day of drying, this is the starting point of today! 







Liebe zum Detail










A day later, I worked on the stretch near the Lorelei tunnel , across the track.
