Painting the castle....

I'm drawing and painting on my knees again...

On Monday we started to prep 5 backdrops for painting.  Actually it's 4 backdrops and one bed sheet our props master, Kath Hillery,  picked up at the thrift store.

On Tuesday I began to draw in the castle wall design I had laid out...

I managed to get three backdrops drawn that day.

 Including the long skinny one.

By the end of Wednesday, I'd finished all the drawing (including on the sheet, which wrinkled like crazy!), and my helpers showed up to get started painting.

This one is the bed sheet. I'm doing most of the painting on it as it's hard to paint over wrinkles.  On the next play, this backdrop will be fine to paint on, it's just difficult the first time around.

So this is where we stopped yesterday evening.  Hopefully we'll have an amazing castle in the end!
