I really like your scenic painting ability with the green hills in the back !! It really looks real as does your very light-blue sky color.

I haven't done much at all on my layout over the past couple years as I have dedicated the hobby time to kit building only. I've got quite a few ahead of me before I can get a feel for the direction of the layout. I did cutout 1/4" hardboard structure bases but haven't really placed them, doing a layout with the intention of having many elevation changes has to be well thought out.
So here's a Sierra West Wood Cutters shack I have completed and will follow up with the SW Foss Landing I completed for the wharf scene.
