If you'd like to see the characters that go with this temple, refer back to a previous December blog post: Ancient Greek Heroes.
It was first painted with Grayed Orange Yellow 12, then dry-brushed with Stained Ivory, and again with Creamy Ivory. We wanted a warmer effect to the stone, something almost rosy like the photographs of Greece.
The little urn is black with Burnt Sienna designs. I looked over images of Grecian urns on the web and then did a kind of abstract people in movement and wheat pattern band at the top. I think it does the trick and gives the impression.
The foliage is from Scenic Express; Silflor miniNature prairie tufts and beech tree are the taller pieces.
I went on to have some fun with the photographs; I insisted that there should be some people in this landscape. ;-)
