I think this was my favourite pose for Professor Snape. It captures all his qualities of courage as well as the guarded man who could could read the thoughts of others while protecting prying eyes from his own private world. In the world of Harry Potter, Snape was my hero…maybe this was because Alan Rickman brought forth a dimension of Snape’s character in his movie portrayal that was mostly overlooked in the book series.
The original art is 10×15″ oil painting on board. The red moon eclipse was totally of my own design as well as the wand blast.
