Roald Dahl on Kraft

This is my first attempt at colouring on kraft.  I assumed it would be difficult to get the colours to look right without a pure white backing but actually, it was really easy.  Despite being so small the image was really easy to colour, it's surprisingly forgiving because the details are so tiny, the slightest touch of colour looked right.
