Illustration Friday: Tall

© Madeleine Allcock 2012. Hogwarts © JK Rowling and Warner Bros.

I tried a lot of things out in this painting after being inspired by the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Watford. (If you haven’t been – go! It’s fantastic!)

I am new to painting scenery and decided it was time to stop just leaving my characters in empty space, so used this piece to experiment. I used a mixture of brushes and layer effects, both of which I don’t normally use. Finally, the colouring and lighting was very bold for me.

I am pleased that I have stepped out of my comfort zone in completing the Hogwarts’ Owlery for Illustration Friday’s “Tall” project, but did find it quite frustrating. There is a reason the fog is there!

Thanks for looking!
