|Before Don arrived, my first step was to project the photos I had taken in December of 2012, when the drought level |
of Dillon Reservoir had receded enough to expose Dickey.
|I also projected an image I had made from Google Earth. I was amazed at how closely the two images compared! |
I then traced the images onto the entire backdrop.
|Don then worked his magic paint brushes, and the results make it feel like standing in Dickey a hundred years ago.|
|Here, Don does his most favorite thing in the world, Lol. We took the suggestion of Mike Danneman, and started |
by painting the backdrop the same color as used for the scenic base.
|The same procedure of projecting slides was used for the entire backdrop.|
|The completed south end of Dickey.|
|With the backdrop finished, its time to get this train rolling, and start on some real scenery.|
