The Christine!-Painted Backdrop

Like a miracle, Christine!, a fine art painter, has come along to hand-paint distant hills and a continuation of the birch forest on Halfland's backdrop. Above, her sketch of the main set she drew to plot out the shapes and proportions. Amazing.
Once the backdrop was fully papered, Christine put down the hill shapes all across the horizon at the right height for puppet-eye level on the main set. The two shots in the middle show her painting in the juncture of where Day meets Night, and then how the finished area looks behind the plastic "air" screen. On the right, her lovely Summer birch trees.
At the opposite end of the sky, to the left of the cottage in the wintry night, Christine made the same landscape as seen in a cold, moonlit darkness.
