Were the bunkers at Normandy just plain concrete in color? Or were they painted in any way? I know they would have had camo nets but I'm wondering about the structure itself.

Use your imagination, basically.

Some were left bare crete with nets.
Some were camo'd up with foliage.
Some were painted some really funky patterns.
Some were painted exactly the way you'd expect the Wehrmacht to have painted them.
Some were painted to resemble local houses (to fool allied bombers/jabos).

That sounds about right … I've seen pictures of all of those …
