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.
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.
