The Backscene, Journeys End……….

After almost fourteen hours of painting, spread over two weeks, I have finally completed the backscene. I have learned a lot in the process and have started to develop an interest in painting, which is rather worrying as I have always said that if I could paint, then I wouldn’t bother modelling. One thing is for sure, and that is I certainly made the right decision to paint my own scene, for I now have a unique backdrop, that can be easily modified should I make any changes to the layout in the future.

Anyway I will let the photos do the talking as they take you on a journey down the line, and through its surrounding countryside.

  1. Very nice Geoff. I am just painting a backscene using acrylics on a roll of canvas. I would thoroughly recommend the book ‘Creating a Backscene’ by Paul Bambrick and John Ellis-Cockell. This really is the definitive book on the subject.

    1. Hi Terry and thanks for your comment. I did consider painting my backscene on a roll of canvas to begin with but used hardboard in the end. I have the book that you mention but found it to be very hard going at times. Good luck with your backscene, it is easier to paint one than you think isn’t it.

      1. Hello again Geoff. You are right, it is easier than you think. I produced a very passable sky by giving the canvas a thin wash of pale blue acrylic paint and, whilst still damp, pressing crumpled kitchen roll onto the surface to create clouds. A touch of thinned purple/grey to the underside of each cloud and job done. I hope your efforts inspire others to have a go.
        Really enjoying your website.

    1. That is a fair comment James, I certainly don’t regret picking up a paintbrush and I think there must be plenty of potential artists out there.
