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!

Update March 2015: The Burrow has been restored, with a fresh layer of paint, and re-scanned to a higher quality.

The funny thing is, in the German translation of Harry Potter "The Burrow" is literally translated as "The Fox Den"- and we all know the Weasleys are all gingers :D

Thank you! I'd like most houses to have more character. So many modern houses are soul-less.

So charming!  I really need to reread the series, most of what I remember about Harry Potter is based off the movies... The books are almost always better! :)

Does it make me a Harry Potter geek if I looked for gnomes in the back yard? :D
Reply
:iconlhox:
Lhox Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, it does. Being a HP geek myself I was thinking of painting a few gnomes, but then thought better of it. The garden gnomes don't really spend much time above ground, apart from when the de-gnoming is going on...

This is overwhelming. The details (those boots by the door! that pond! that owl on the roof! is it Errol?) the colors, the light+shadow.. absolutely wonderful.
How big is this, and how did you scan it? I can't believe the precision in the details.

:iconlhox:
Lhox Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you so much! It is slightly bigger than A3, and scanned in an A3 scanner. It might be Errol, but I'm more inclined to think it's Hermes. I think Errol would probably be asleep in the day.

Hey, would you ever consider making some of your paintings into a card set? That would be super great!!
Oh wait...nevermind I just realize you already had answered that before...I just get so excited every time I look through your work! xD
