The hills of El Dorado

After getting the pan head screws removed, filling in the seam, countersinking the new screws and spackling over them, I was able to recoat the backdrop with a fresh coat of sky blue.  Then I got the distant hills painted on tonight.

Once this dries and I get a little time, I'll start painting on the foliage of the closer hills using these craft paints like I did before.


  1. What shade of blue paint did you use for the sky? I have found that no matter how much I try, what looks good in the store and on a paint chip in my basement never looks as good once I have actually painted the backdrop.

    1. Let me see if I can find it. I have an image of it on my Google Photo Album somewhere. I'll make a new post that has just the image.
