Thank you all for your kind comments.  I am just taking my time and not rushing anything.  I want the backscene to be 'in the background' so to speak, with the viewer's attention focused on the modelled scene in front.  I am keeping the colours fairly subdued in the hope of achieving this.

Sol , I have booked the flight!

Today, I decided to move things along by adding some trees to the landscape and to enhance the hedgerows.  All achieved by dabbing a sap green/black mix onto the canvas with a small hog's hair brush. Plenty of work of this nature left to do so I probably won't be updating this thread for a short while.  Here is where we are at present... (please excuse the horizontal lines caused by the shed light

excellent work Terry!
(I'm haunted by the image of a hairbrush belonging to a small hog...)

You have definitely done that Terry and I think they will set of the models superbly.  I think it's really difficult to keep a subtle colour palette, and I know I would be inclined to add too much.  Loof forward to seeing them in situ!

Hi Terry.     Another question. The scenic break behind the bridge at Farleigh, have you got any ideas on how you will finish off the bare plywood ,  I had intended to decorate the plywood on Inglenook junction as a cliff face, but that idea isn’t going well and now I am looking for another idea, can you please advise me. Best wishes Kevin

Hello Kevin. My backscene is long enough to cover both ends as well as the rear of the layout. May I suggest that you buy a photographic backscene and glue part of it to the plywood?

Regards,


Terry

Still painting my way along the 9' long backscene. Field boundaries mostly painted.  Gradually adding more hedges and trees. 

I had previously fitted a single strip of 'warm white' LEDs behind the pelmet but became aware that the lighting was a little on the dim side.   I recently bought another strip of 'cool white' LEDs for under £10 on the 'bay'.  These are much brighter so, in order not to completely swamp the layout in bright light, I stuck these above the original LEDs in small clusters along the length of the layout.  It was simplicity itself to run connecting wires from the original LED strip to the new clusters.
