This one was done for the hp_art_project

Chapter Five of Half Blood Prince. An excess of phlem.

I chose to do the scene where Arthur comes home from work after Harry has arrived at the Burrow late at night.  That's the Weasley's Clock in the foreground (in the laundry basket), with all the hands pointing at 'Mortal Peril.'

Copic marker, gouache and watercolour.

The original art is for sale if anyone is interested.  :~)

Looks like Ron (and Ginny?) are going to be Beaters in the Quidditch team for the movie.  O.o

ETA:  maybe not; these uniforms look like the ones in CoS, so it might be Fred and George.

ETA2: definitely Fred and George.  ;~)
So, the computer desk is CLEAR, and I'm ready to start unpacking teh new computer. But I've discovered that the current power points are already overloaded... o.O So now I'm going to wait till hubby gets home from his mother's to discuss a new plan of action.
Anyway, while I was cleaning I started wondering - considering how much has been cut out of 'OotP the movie,' do you think Ron and Hermione's storyline will make it into the HBP movie?

[Poll #880632]

Just after it came out, I posted my thoughts on HBP . Now, while I'm waiting for paint to dry, here are my thoughts on HBP part 2...SPOILERS AHOY! )

My Muse snuck up on me while I was sitting in the car waiting to pick up my son from Cadets at 10pm this evening! Resulting in this completely stream of consciousness sketch which pretty much drew itself. (the best kind!) I actually went armed to write - plot bunnies dancing round my head - but sat there with my journal open and pen ready, waiting for the words to flow for about 5mins, then closed it all, got out the visual diary I have with me at all times and away we went!

I'm really quite thrilled cos I was SO lagging behind all my fellow artists here on lj for getting some HBP art done. :~)

My 10yo daughter came home from school this afternoon with the wonderful news that some delightful little TWAT had spoiled the book for her (and the rest of the class)! This after several members of the class said very loudly that they did not want to hear or be spoiled.

I am ludicrously angry about this. Maybe because the same thing happened to her when OotP came out.

Moral of the story is, I guess, to make sure my daughter gets the next book read in the first couple of days like me.

My younger son hasn't been spoiled yet, so I'm off to read to him (this is the first of the HP books he's actually been keenly reading himself) so he can hopefully get it read before one of the little 'darlings' in his class decide to ruin it for everyone else!

Ok.  My feelings on the new book...
In a nutshell - too short.  I felt like we got the heavily abridged version.  Before OotP I was a fan of HP, but turned obsessed after.  I've heard folks complain that OotP was too long, that she should have edited loads out, but I really truly LOVED it.  I loved every skerrick of info, and that we were able to really get to know characters.  (Neville for example.) GoF was similar. Both felt like wonderfully juicy stories.  I think if she wrote GoF now, the entire SPEW thing would be edited out and, while I can accept that in the movie version, I'm certainly grateful I got it in the book!  Does it advance the major plot line?  No, but it gives the reader a wonderful insight into the Wizarding world and its various predjudices; something she expanded on with Umbridge.
Did I like The Half-Blood Prince?  I have to say yes, but am going to wait until I've read it again and digested it properly before I can say how much.  I guess my initial reaction is disappointment - simply because I felt we missed out on SO much.   It was a bit like watching the movie version of PoA.  (I loved it to bits cos it was visually stunning and the kids were wonderful, but it left a LOT out.)  But in the case of that film, I have the book to go back to for the full story.  With HBP... this is all we get.

cut for LOTS and LOTS of SPOILERS )
