Any good fairy story has a transformation scene. For Cinderella at the Nomad Theatre a pumpkin will turn into a coach and it’s my job to make it look right. Today I started painting and this is as far as I got. 

First I painted the pumpkin shape and the grey background — the wheels and vegetation will go on top of this later.

Then  I folded over the hinged section and painted the beginning of the coach.
