Jos, I wish you were here to paint me a background like that one...but 24feet long. Looks just like the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The whole scene is well balanced and done with skill.

naturally natural trees

Rex uuhhhm 24 feet long is 7.7 meters day the drawing and one day the painting with acrylpaint+ small sponge..+airbrush;) so you say it sir, tomorrow???:eek: :p

Most important: the colors of the background. You have to choose them very carefuly. Also they have to "fit" with the other vegetation/eart colors on the layout and of course you have to use the "athmospheric perspective": The colors are fading away into,if it is far enough: almost like blue.
post a detail of the background too.

Also important: it is not my layout... I am not as far/good as these guys, but one day...I hope...
