|The script called for two backcloths cloths of the same cafe interior. The first - ramshackle and run down, but the second - upmarket and smart after Mrs Baba came into a fortune. Here are the right hand side of those two contrasting cloths (Figures for scale)|
|By the way, to paint curtains I try and work wet-in-wet i.e. keep the paint wet so that any blending of colours melds into each other. To paint the folds of curtains I use a wide five inch brush and have the main colour on the bristles but then dip one corner of that same paint-laden brush into another colour (A darker version of the base colour for shadow or a lighter version for highlight.)|
