Two small backcloths for this year's Show, beginning with :- FRENCH CHATEAU
The brief was a cloth depicting the entrance to a French Chateau. This to be used as the "backing" for a "film" being made on the stage. "Singing in the Rain" is about the history of the movies when Sound ousted the Silent era.

Your's truly (Brian Willis) using a thin mist of white paint to "knock back" the background building to give depth to the foreground steps. This mist is most noticeable at the base of the doors.
