Drawing Professor McGonagall form Harry Potter as a Cat

In this video I draw and paint in watercolour, Minnie the cat pretending to be Professor Minerva McGonagal, head of Gryffindor House at Hogwarts School – from J K Rowling’s Harry Potter Saga.

This is part of my 100 Cats series, and was commissioned by Gill Ward in an online auction that was raising funds for the late children’s author, Tommy Dombavand, who sadly died earlier this year.

It is mostly painted in water colour and the final yellow and green were added with Dr Martin’s Radiant watercolours – Daffodil Yellow and Chartreuse Green.

All Walker wants is a dog, but his mother is allergic. So he decides to set up his own business walking everyone else’s dogs. This works better than he could have imagined when he finds he can talk to dogs and understand what they say to him! The dogs tell him of a terrible puppy farm hidden in the woods by Arlington Wherewithall, the richest, most famous man in the area. Nobody will listen to him, so it is down to Walker and the dogs to stop the farm and save the puppies.

What? Walker’s eyes popped wide open. “You mean you can get paid for walking dogs? Now I know what I want to do when I grow up. When can I leave school?”
