Harry Potter - in progress

Hey Gang! Just thought I'd share an 'in-progress' photo of the paintings I'm working on this week. I'm having so much fun with my ink and watercolor. It feels like I haven't held a brush in forever and I'm more than a little addicted!

I finished Voldemort last night (I need a title, any suggestions?) and will be painting Dumbledore/Harry today. That one's called "Alas! Ear wax!" Haha.

Here is a link to Gallery Nucleus if you'd like to check out the exhibition info. The show's July 9th at 7pm. Mark your calendars!

The Youngest Seeker in a Century

Gallery Nucleus has a tribute blog and upcoming exhibition on July 9th dedicated to one of my favorite things ever... Harry Potter!

I did this small painting (ink and watercolor) that will be included on the blog and in the show. I chose to depict Harry playing Quidditch because when I first read Sorcerer's Stone, that was one of my, "Woooow, cool!" moments with all the action and suspense and humor that comes along with the sport. And JKR did such an amazing job creating her own sport, too don't you think?! You know, I think if I were to ever play Quidditch, I think I'd like to be the seeker... or a beater :)

I plan on doing a few more of these little 5x5 paintings because they're just too much fun. My next one will have Dumbledore in it, I think. I love all the characters, but he may be my absolute favorite... or maybe the twins... or Mrs. Weasley... or... Haha, I can't decide!

Who's your favorite Harry Potter character?
