Ballast Color

Did some experimenting on ballast, and need some advice. Narrow Gauge seemed to ballast sparsely and with whatever local material available.

In the Clear Creek area I'm working you can see the base rock color in the paint. Which of the below ballasts looks best?

This is the grout method using stainloc. Color seems good match but looks a little to uniform to me.

This is grout, starting to add varying mixes of Arizona Rock ballast in for more color and texture.

This is pure Arizona Rock.

Feathering in more Arizona Rock to grout.

Another grout Arizona Rock combo.

So do any of them look good? Which is best.

Thanks Cameron
