And here is a sketch for this week's topic Gilderoy Lockhart:

Ginny, Neville and Luna sketches with Casein Paint

Ginny, Neville and Luna sketches with Casein Paint.
I am working with a limited palette so it is hard to get some of the colors (violet, bright red, pink etc). The second is with some photoshop retouching. 
Palette: Venetian Red, Golden Ochre, Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Umber, and Titanium White.
I like the paint. It behaves a lot like gouache. It is a little more forgiving if you go back into it after it dries. I am also tired of working with a limited palette. :)  I need to buy some more colors.

Snape(s) for Wizarding Wednesday

I retouched and colored an old sketch of Snape and Nagini for Wizarding Wednesday. I couldn't help making another sketch of young Snape to be watercolored when I have more time. :)
