Earth and Sky

This afternoon saw the painting of the track in preparation for ballasting and embedding in cobbles. For this I misted on red, grey and black primers. 

The backscene has seen some rudimentary colouring using a technique I've wanted to try out for some time using spray paints and paper masks to create a high pressure hazy summer day effect. My pet hate is tatty badly finished overstated backscenes, this technique is quite the opposite both in finish and effect.


  1. Looks really good Chris...that backscene technique is one that Jack ( Shortliner) Trollope has been using and promoting for quite awhile...I think it's very effective.

  2. Nice backscene effect - will we be seeing more of this in print in the future ?
