I am glad That I planned ahead and made the layout with a removable end so the closet would be accessible in case of something having to be replaced. Now I need to blend the layout into a new opening for the closet. I started by removing the doors. I then cut a Piece of foam that would cover the hole in the wall.The foam is held in place the by an overhang in back and Slides in the front. It is easily removed.








This piece will be painted to blend in the back ground..

Nice solution for hiding the utility closet.

I am really blessed. My wife rarely comes down to the basement. She just thinks I go down and play with my toys.

I have been slowly working on the cover to the closet. I am making the start of a mountain/hill with a tunnel portal in it. Besides the wall the the Mountain/hill comes off in two sections. So far they are really light weight.

I have had a really busy week. I have slowly been working on getting this tunnel/mountain framed in. I have added the rest of the pink foam.

And then roughed it in.

I have painted up the wall and added zip txturing to the whole rock area. I still need to add all of the ground cover and foliage.

Ty, your scenery painting looks pretty good, but if you made the background lighter and lighter as the scene recedes it would have more depth. Having the background the same intensity as the foreground makes the scene appear flat.

The next time you’re headed up 77 or 85 looking down into the valleys notice how the colors change from bright green to a grayed green then almost shades of gray. (atmospheric perspective)

Frank,
I totally agree with you. I travel the mountains a lot every year. I can see all this in my minds eye, but when it comes to painting I have a very poor knowledge of colors. Blending and mixing have been a problem for me. The tutorial I based my backdrop on was very straight forward and easy to do.

Ty, have you tried a graduated wash over the background? start mild and get more gray as you go back in depth
