I was asked the other week by a friend about the paint detail I use for painting kits and scenic work.
It does vary from person to person, and, unless you're actually painting a direct copy of a building or scene, I tend to advise to go for impression rather than detail.
Fencing is prime example, too many people over do the fencing paint work, under painted is better. I use a mixture of paint work and flock to create the effect I want.
Base coat the fencing, then paint over with the colour you want, a good idea is to weather the undercoat rather than the top coats.
Once I've done the top coats, I tend to use some flock to create some form of colour, perhaps roses or moss around the fencing.
I'll post some photos for you to see later this month.
