Baby Steps

[Stephen Langdale's Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber]

I humbly offer evidence of my first attempts at coloring toy theatre sheet...

I would love to have made my copies onto watercolor paper, but the print shops around me don't have any large enough for the theatre I'm going to be using this for. The best they could offer was a heavy paper like card stock, recommended because it would make a good strong print. I'm using high quality pastels to color it with, and the color so far looks very nice. I also obtained some gold leaf which I might use a bit of around the proscenium eventually...
