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.
