I have been working in the Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s shop with Nathan Rodda, the society’s set designer. This will become part of the backdrop for act I of their July production of “The Mikado.”
We worked together on the final design for this 18 x 32’ backdrop and began sketching it in chalk yesterday. Today the chalk drawing was finished and we began painting the outlines. I will post more photos as the painting progresses.
