"Not a Cloud in the Sky…."

With all due respect to Karen Carpenter that's not quite the case anymore. 
I painted the basement walls sky blue before starting construction, but it looked exactly like what it was - a plain blue wall. 
A vast expanse of blue wall behind the peninsula needs a few clouds to liven things up a bit. 
Tonight I decided to add some horizon line clouds and a line of clouds slightly higher in the sky. I'll come back tomorrow and add some distant hills. 
While it's not exactly going to put anyone "On Top of the World" I think it does look better. 

I painted these using tips I picked up from video series on MR Video Plus and from Chris Lyon's four-part series on TrainMasters TV.

That looks really good Marty! I love that greyish blue color. Now if someone could find the paint code for me.... ;)

Thanks Tore,
Thought I'd sent you the formula for sky blue paint?
I'll dig it out again tonight and post it in the main body of the blog (you're not the only one who's asked).

That would be excellent. You did send me the name of the color, but I couldn't find that name here in Norway. Maybe the code would help.
