Nice bright blue refreshed backdrop panels are almost intimidating.
Left end and right end modules of set of 4 that Bill and I have at Boonslick Model RR club HO layout.
Backdrops were second hand and looked more than a bit rode hard and put up wet.
Now all I need is to get my Bob Ross or Michelangelo game on, whichever suit model RR scenery best.

Want to paint clouds first then whichever kind of scenery is settled on - that way clouds will go behind scenery.

Are leaving backdrops off two middle modules of the four since people commented that they like to be able to see yard in center of layout square.

Had considered cutting backdrop tops with wavy shape but then decided that was more work than I wish to do.

Forrest,
Nice start but a little trick is to fade the blue to almost white nearer to the horizon. If you look outside at an actual sky there is no real blue color at the horizon and this would make your backdrop more realistic. You can do it with a brush or simply sponge some white on the lower portion.
