Building Three - Small Dark Age dwelling thatched -timber and daub
There is a joy in trying techniques and then trying to add a few more refinements. There is a muted-ness (is that a word?) in the colours used on these houses. With the flakes of wattle and daub coming away there is an element of decay in these houses. An honest peasant sort of house with this being totally unassuming. Airey, spacious with rustic charm, all terms that modern real estate people might call it.
I know it was just fun to paint, and make it look lived in and blending in with the environment over time. I imagine that the wafts of smoke from the open hearths would be the first thing that an approaching traveller might see, rather than the houses themselves which would blend in so well to the landscape.
Many of the colours used in all of the buildings were the same paints, but I tried very subtle differences just so they did not all look the same.
