AN AVERAGE DAY AT HOGWARTS
Another preliminary study for a Harry Potter painting. In this one I imagine Harry having been on the grounds of Hogwarts after classes when Draco comes up to him making his usual taunts. As Harry walks away, trying to ignore him, Draco makes a particularly nasty comment about Harry's parents. This shows the moment when Harry has taken out his wand---struggling with the impulse to turn around and cast a curse on him before suppressing the urge and walking on without a backward glance.
Not a specific scene from one of the stories. Just something I imagine to be a common experience for Harry at Hogwarts.
I think when I do the painting I may show Draco's wand in his hand at his side
