Did French guns sport camouflage schemes, as per these pictures? The Google image searches I've undertaken seem to suggest otherwise, but I do like the idea of adding some colour to my early war force:

My Googling of ‘real' images, i.e. not models or colour profiles, gives a mix of results. Some guns clearly are camouflage painted whilst others are not. Consequently I'd go with whatever you feel like painting.

Field guns were definitely painted in camouflage schemes in WW1 later in the war. I don't know about WW2 at all.

Most photos I have seen show them in plain colours but I have seen a few 75mm in dappled camo schemes

I've seen both here and there from various sources in WWI and WWII. Regardless those models are very nicely done.
