Winter in Grimmauld place

Yet another Sirius... Yes, I know, I'm obsessed! Next time, I'll draw Snape, I promise. This one was to illustrate this, by Thistlerose: On the inside of Number Twelve Grimmauld Place, nothing has changed. Sirius Black, who has been hunched over his writing desk since he found himself unable to get back to sleep six hours ago, glances out the window from time to time, but barely takes in what he sees. If a whirlwind picked up this house and set it down on a tropical island or atop a mountain in the Himalayas, so long as Sirius was forced to remain inside, he would not care. The fishpond in which Kreacher drowned the puppy eight-year-old Sirius brought home from Hyde Park, and in which Sirius’ cousin Bellatrix once tried to drown /him/, is covered completely. The yew tree, which grows by Sirius’ window and is nearly taller than the house itself, is laden with snow; its branches droop under their burden and knife-sharp icicles cling to their undersides. Ginny Weasley hung a birdfeeder from one of the branches this past summer, but though Sirius filled it with sunflower seeds and breadcrumbs, no birds or squirrels have come to it. Christmas lights glow red and green on the houses on either side of Number Twelve; they cast pools of color onto the snow. Everything on this side of the wrought iron fence, however, is black and white. One of my first pics in pastel pencils. I'm beginning to like this medium a lot, at least when it comes to portraits and indoor scenes. Illustration inspired by JK Rowling's Order of the Phoenix, fifth Harry Potter book.
