Painting the backdrop!

Thought I would try a bit of time lapse!  This is me painting the backdrop for the school play one evening. Three hours work compressed into about 30 seconds.  The paints I use are special stage paints – water based acrylic – which are very highly pigmented and give lovely strong colours.  The backdrop is 7m x 3m approximately – pretty huge!  In total, the backdrop took about 15 hours to do – starting with painting white paint over last years background!
