I love Harry Potter. One of the things I especially liked in the books (and movies) were the portraits hanging in the halls of Hogwarts, especially the wizard portraits in the headmasters office. So, when I signed up for the Everything Harry Potter swap I decided to paint a wizard portrait for my partner. I'm sooooo happy with how well it turned out, I thought I'd share it here too since she recieved a day or two ago.



It's approx 8 x 10, acrylic on canvas

I thought about garden gnome too, but only because in the thumbnail it was cropped! Awesome portrait. Wink

It's because his hat isn't quite pointy enough. Ah well, maybe he's a wizarding gnome  Smiley I'm sure there's a few around in the wizarding world. Hmmm, or maybe it was my love of gnomes shining through. I love those the little beggars too.

It actually didn't take that long. A few hours. Sometimes I can spend hours painting a leaf so comparatively it wasn't that long really.
