"Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman."


My friend Kj was in Scotland for four years, working on her PhD.  While there, she was able to visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London in January with another beloved friend, Jonathan. They posted a picture that made my heart full:

I knew the bridge had significant meaning for Kj (Prisoner of Azkaban is in her top 10 films), and the structure itself is beautiful. So for her birthday, I wanted to try to capture the above image, if I could. I had about a week to finish it in time for her birthday!

 In the film the bridge looks very brown, but in the photo of my friends it looked more blue/gray. And because it's me, I decided not to do the bridge all one color. If I'd had more time I would have colored in the shadow/black part of the bridge, but it didn't happen. Fortunately I really love how it turned out, particularly in the amount of time I was working with!

And this weekend I got to take a pic with the inspirations themselves!
