Salazar Slytherin by AlexandraRena Salazar Slytherin by AlexandraRena
This is a part of my series, The Founders of Hogwarts. The Harry Potter books have been a part of my life for over 15 years, and I wanted to create a series of paintings dedicated to the world J.K. Rowling created. For this series, I used ink and watercolor. I spent a fair bit of time drooling over my medieval costume and fashion books, and chose border and medallion motifs, as well as costuming, according to my interpretations of the personalities of each founder. The motifs and costume in each painting do span over a range of 900-1200 AD. The landscapes behind the character, within the frame, are depictions of the generic regions from which each founder hails.

Salazar Slytherin, Hogwarts and the world of Harry Potter is ŠJ.K. Rowling.

Watercolor & Ink. May 2014.

Individual prints of the founders, plus a large print of all four can be found at my Etsy shop:  www.etsy.com/listing/191016417…

The other three founders of Hogwarts are here:
