The back scene painting has come on from doing the sky last time. I started with painting the hills into the cliff face. I had sketched in a viaduct in the background to suggest a mainline that the station and goods branches end up connecting to.

(initial hill painted in. A hint of woodland copses and hedgerows on the hills with scrubby embankments either side of the viaduct) 

 

Following this I carried on with the hillscape round the layout until it came to another cliff and the sea. In order to suggest a rolling hill lighter greens were used at the top of the hill with streaks of white brushed in to give that curve feel.

Having completed the hills I started adding some of the town scape using a square end brush and lots of different shades of brown and red to have the brick feel to match the brick paper on the layout. I also thought it would be nice to have a white horse on one of the hills and took my inspiration from Folkstones recent artwork.

Finally I started to paint a beach scene from the cliff behind the station.

Still more to do on the townscape and  thinking about how to paint on a bit more of the harbour in perspective

 

Thanks for reading
