As far as I know, painted backdrops were not used in TOS (although matte paintings certainly were).
I can think of one painted scenic backdrop: the surface of Talos IV in "The Cage" was a painting. I've always wondered where that came from. I doubt it was made for the production. It always reminded me of the Altair IV backdrop from Forbidden Planet, and plenty of stuff from that film landed in The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, so it wouldn't be inconcievable that the backdrop got re-used for the Trek pilot film. If anyone knows the origins of that particular item, I'd be intersted to know it.

But, as far as extending Interior spaces, I can't think of any paintings used in TOS... just quick re-arraging of wild set segments. And the minature set for the shuttlebay.
