Hey Bob,

Haven't heard much from you in a while.

How are things going?

I have not accomplished much lately. 

Finishing up a kitchen renovation,
took my granddaughter to Washington DC etc. 

Have been operating Geneseo Railway,
but only minor little projects have been completed.  

Hope to get going on projects worthy of posting soon.

I have been desiring a backdrop for a long long time and have been considering hiring someone to put paint on the walls. 
I decided to give it a go myself and spent a little time over the past week painting the walls blue and adding some clouds.
 
Today I picked a spot to start some scenery. 
A road that needed to curve out of sight with pine trees as a backdrop. 
Figured the worst that could happen is I would have to paint over it again.
 
Not to dissatisfied for a first attempt. 
Suspect I will learn as I go.

That's really rather good Bob and a sight better than I could achieve.

There's real depth in the scene.

Nicely done.

Hi Bob,

Try stippling in some darker green, here and there on your painted pine trees.
Note the dark areas on your model trees.

Other than looking a little flat,
your first attempt at painting a backdrop came out very effective.

Thanks Larry...will try that.

Worked on a little more of the backdrop. 
Looks like I will now need a bunch of trees for the foreground.

Wow, You are an background artist for sure.
It's a lot of time consuming tedious work, but well worth the effort. 

For the foreground trees, take a look at artificial Christmas trees.
A very few of them have needles that look very good.
If you cut the branches into various sizes and tapper them, they make nice evergreens.
 
All the evergreens you see on my layout were made from fake Christmas trees.
