My tribute to Alan Rickman.

Nearly every day I read the Harry Potter books to my child (once we finish a book, he's allowed to watch the film). Naturally we are both completely obsessed with the magical world, the story and the characters. When I read, I try to include the voices and intonations of each character so as to make it fun for my kid. And no other character gives me such pleasure to enact than Snape, as inspired by Alan Rickman's stellar performance.

I doubt very much my acting skills are anywhere close to doing him justice; hopefully my art comes a tiny little closer.

Great portrait, Catherine. It does him justice, especially with the dramatic lighting and the effect of the watercolour splatters. He will be missed. Two great artistic personalitites in one week—that's too much!

Thanks so much Caroline. Yes, much talent sadly departed from us lately.
