Join Robert Brown for a look at his layout “Llanidris” where he will talk briefly about the idea of “atmosphere” in a layout and how he has tried to build it in from the conception at the thumbnail sketch stage.
He will explore how he tries to work with perspective on a flat backscene, without it clashing with 3D scenery, and how colours and tones can create apparent depth. Robert will explain the use of forced perspective in his model buildings and the various ideas and methods which may help people trying to do something similar. He will be showing how he has gradually compressed the depth of buildings in Llanidris as they approach the backscene, and how he arrived at the distorted shapes that were needed.
Robert will be looking at his methods for creating wall textures, which are mostly done with DAS clay, and his slate roofing methods – particularly looking at how to reconcile rectangular slates with distorted, forced perspective buildings.
