What colors and paints can I use for my night snow scene on my model railroad?

Question by Steve71: What colors and paints can I use for my night snow scene on my model railroad?
Should I paint the platform a dark bluish-white, or is snow white OK for a night scene? There will also be a wrap-around mural 12″ high by 10 feet of painted fiberboard. I want a dark ribbon of river, a darker distant shore and a convincing sky color, like indigo or violet, also some residual sunset on one end of the mural. Think Polar Express. I am not an artist, so please be specific about paint types, colors, mixing and techniques! Should I just buy a pint of background color and add details with the more expensive paints? Thanks in advance for your thoughtful answers.
OK, maybe I could add darker shadows later, but what is the overall color of village snow on a moonlit night? Will pure white work?

Answer by Debonair
Blues are used for shading snow or when snow is in shadow.. Always keep in mind that shadows are made by using a darker color of the object that is in shadow or is being shaded. As an example, an orange on a green table. The shaded side of the orange is a darker orange. The shadow casted on the green table is a darker green than the area of the table that is in full light.. Never using black. Only use black when something is black in color. Do a web search of paintings of winter scenes for references to see how others have handled the same image.
