The Burrow by Lhox The Burrow by Lhox
'It looked as though it had once been large stone pigsty, but extra rooms had been added here and there until it was several storeys high and so crooked it looked as though it was held up by magic…Four or five chimneys were perched on top of the red roof. A lop-sided sign stuck in the ground near the entrance read ’The Burrow’. Round the front door lay a jumble of wellington boots and a very rusty cauldron. Several fat brown chickens were pecking their way around the yard.'

-From 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' by J.K. Rowling.-

Painted with Gouache on watercolour paper. Felt-tipped pen for the outlines.
A note to all my fellow HP geeks out there- if you like my fanart, please let me know what you'd like me to illustrate next from the series!

oh I love this one!  It's really nice to see a visual of a building (with the help of text from a story) to get an idea of how it would look. Nice work! :)

Thanks for your interest! I might make this available as a print soon, but it will not be via deviantart. DA doesn't use environmentally friendly paper and ink, so I will go elsewhere. I will post a journal when my work becomes available, with a link to where it can be purchased.

There was a period where I had 2 or 3 times dreamed of being at Hogwarts, and once in Diagon Alley. Also once at the Burrows, Maybe that was when I read the Adventures of Martin Miggs,the Mad Muggle (by Alfred Literation, I gather). A story where he was working on a canal.

 

I have been to the Remington House,a Burrows-like construction if you ever saw one !

I refer to the one in California, built by Mrs.Remington, who went funny when her family all died in quick succession. To protect herself from the ghosts of those killed by her husband's rifles (he designed and manufactured guns), she took the advice of a medium, to build a mansion to confuse bad ghosts and house good ghosts. Indian tracker ghosts would get lost in the maze of corridors. Each night she would hold seances to draw up further blueprints for new rooms, halls, etc.

Many details  made no sense: a closet just a few inches deep and another large enough to house a car ! A door opening to a 10-foot drop into a closed space with windows on every side. To exit-if not hurt in the fall- you'd have to climb through a window. A beautiful tiffany window blocked off by a chimney blocking the sunlight. A chimney ending in an attic. Somewhere is a sealed off wine cellar.(a handprint on a wall left by a workman was seen by Mrs.Remington as a ghost print and she ordered the room sealed forever. It's location is not known and curators are not about to rip up the place to try & find it.)

There is also a haunted room, where the San Francisco quake is held. The sensitive can still feel it at night.

The workmen were not loyal to their employer. The moment word got out that she had died in her sleep, they stopped -in midhammer stroke even- and left. She believed that she would live as long as the house was under construction. She died anyhow.

Of all the houses I've been in,haunted or not*, this is the only one I never had any idea of what it looked like ,or where I was in the chaotic building. Guides are on hand to conduct tours.

* I've been in many alleged haunted houses, even slept in one in Wales, but never saw a ghost.

Of course not. They don't just hang around on the lawn- they live under ground, and emerge when the garden is being de-gnomed.
