Earlier today I painted the backdrop. First two coates of white latex paint and then a coat of very light blue.

I have no intention of varying the shades of blue or painting clouds or anything. I want it to show as little as possible.

Turning to the window I caught the view below. A very pale winter sun above my neighbour’s roof. Outside it is -8 degrees Celsius (17.6 Fahrenheit, if I have done my calculations correctly).

Tonight I also cut som MDF board for the staging yard. It is not properly installed yet (on risers). It just lies there for a test fit.
