Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.08 by TheGeekCanPaint Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.08 by TheGeekCanPaint
Gouache paint with coloured pencil on watercolour paper.
16 x 22 inches

Well, “My Fair Lady” is over, and now after much time of not painting, I’ve finally completed a new piece. It’s the next Potter-Painting, Chapter Eight of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”, “The Deathday Party”.

I always have mixed feelings about my paintings and this one is no different. It had alot of potential, it is an incredibly creative and interesting scene. There’s so much fun stuff described in it... yet I had surprising little interest in it. But, it was still Potter, and I still had fun with it and tried to treat it as I do all the other scenes I’ve illustrated. The only thing I (in my mind) skimped on, was I had originally planned on including seeing some of the orchestra of musical saws, but I just couldn’t make them fit, so I didn’t fight as hard as I normally would.

That said, I’m happy with the way it turned out. Besides the orchestra, I think I put in every ghost mentioned in the scene and then some. I think it has the right mood, and there’s a couple fun little details I’m particularly proud of. Namely the Bloody Barron and the Grey Lady giving each other a glance, and the knight with the arrow sticking out of his head is the Black Knight from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.

I love the obligatory 1920's gangster ghost at the buffet table. Great job on this one.
