Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.09 by TheGeekCanPaint Harry Potter: Book 2, Ch.09 by TheGeekCanPaint
Gouache paint with coloured pencil on watercolour paper.
16 x 22 inches

Another Potter-Painting done in about a week! So, though itís been a while since I got to paint, I feel like Iím starting to get caught up.

The background is a tad boring, yet it works for me. And the kids themselves I had a bunch of fun painting. Myrtle proved to be a hair of a problem, but mostly because she was right on top of Hermione. I canít tell you how scary it was to finish painting Hermione and then laying a wash right on top of her; each stroke of the brush it was like, ďOh my gosh! What am I doing!!!Ē. But in the end, it worked out. I think my only real disappointment with the piece is Myrtleís mouth doesnít read quite right - sheís crying alright, but it doesnít look as extreme as it did in the original drawing.

Oh and now I can say Iíve painted a toilet. A slimy, gross, disgusting toilet.

Well Rowling is awesome at writing multidimensional characters. She was not a very sympathetic character, but we feel sorry for her because she didn't need to die

Boy do they look unimpressed. Poor Myrtle.
I think you did really well with transparency. We can see both Hermione and Myrtle clear enough.
The disgusting toilet reminds me of my high school. If there were no door-knob and no toilet paper the resemblance would be uncanny.

I think if the stall door was missing and the was no toilet paper it would resemble every high school bathroom ;)

Seriously though, thanks for the compliments. I'm happy you like the way it turned out :)

That looks great! :D Myrtle kinda reminds me of Ugly Betty for some reason. Funnily enough, that's just about how I've always pictured her when I read the books. :P

Thanks so much! And yeah, I can kind of see the Ugly Betty-ness of her. Not exact of course, but there are similarities :)
