Painting the backdrop

The painting has begun. First step was to paint the base colour. This was particularly important for the piece of cloth used here as it isn’t a new piece of cloth – it was painted up with a barn interior image from a previous play.

The cloth is attached to a flight bar so that it can easily be moved up and out of the way during painting.  I’m painting the backdrop while others are doing the set, being able to move the back cloth up into the ceiling makes this easier for everyone.

All together what you see here took three hours to paint. Next step is to add in the details.
