So, I recently brainstormed and thought: how cool would it be to make small acrylic paintings based on Harry Potter spells? Might have something to do with listening to the audio books everyday, but I thought it would be fun, so I started with Lumos (as that’s the one I’ve spent the most time working on in my head).
Note to self: add the wand first. I initially was going for something that looked slightly more like Hermione’s wand – with some curls and stuff, but that didn’t work out, and then I spent the rest of the time lightening it and adding swirls of light over it.
I also tried out my new watercolor paper – I have some things I need to paint to send to friends this month (and this is one of them), so the picture I’m posting is just a portion of the actual thing, but OMG I *love* the cold press paper that I got. Soooooo much smoother. I’m never going back!
I decided to recreate a design I’d already tried, but a little differently. Mostly because I used watercolor as opposed to acrylics and didn’t glue paper on top…of my paper. Can’t wait to play with it more /all I have to say.
