Backdrop Painting

Going back around the backdrop and extending the tree/foliage pattern downward meant doing a passable job of matching painting I did 15 years ago.

To do that I dug up old notes and looked at old progress photos.

The new foliage only had to be good enough to not be distracting or draw attention to itself.

Since it was all down toward the bottom of the backdrop, a lot of it will eventually be hidden by 3-D scenery.

These revisions to the backdrop are going to give me a lot more flexibility when it comes time to design and install the sub scenery.
