This portrait of an aspiring Harry Potter was a case of “more haste, less speed”. It’s my entry for this week’s Old School Sktchy weekly challenge which has the theme “Harry Potter” and I ended up trying to fit it in between dog walks and hospital visits (my husband is in hospital this week). The result was that I feel that I rushed every stage of it and nothing quite worked. Lesson learned.

I painted this portrait in my Moleskine watercolour sketchbook with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished it with Prismacolor coloured pencils.
