Great backdrop painting

Michael Graf  is a custom model builder and painter from Sweden. He has posted some great step-by- step images of an urban backdrop scene he painted for his layout. Check it out at this link. The text is in Swedish, so you may need to translate. I recommend the Google Translate function.

Note his comment about curving the road as it moves toward the backdrop. That helps make the perspective look correct from multiple viewpoints.
