Small watercolour scenaries

Painting with flu, small watercolour scenaries: liberty style house and haunted house, 10x11cm

Helga Hufflepuff

Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her House favoured loyalty, honesty, fair play, and hard work. Born in the 10th Century in the broad valleys of Wales, she was one of the most powerful witches of her time and a great friend of Rowena Ravenclaw. She brought people from different backgrounds together to help in the building of the school, and was known for her charming ways. Helga had a gift for food-related Charms, and her recipes are still used as the basis for many Hogwarts feasts.

Rowena Ravenclaw

The "beautiful yet slightly intimidating" Rowena Ravenclaw, one of the four Founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her great wisdom and skills can be seen from the fact that she was the one that designed the magical stairs in Hogwarts. The diadem is the only known possession left from Rowena, and it has inscribed "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure" on it, which connects it to what Ravenclaw was mostly valued, wisdom. She was probably the most intelligent witch of her time. Her House values sharp mind, wisdom, creativity, and cleverness in its members.
