The Wizard's Library


Badge Awards

The painting took me around 1 month (couple of hours here and there most nights)
Acrylic on watercolour paper (300 gsm) 30x40cm.

This has been a labour of love from start to finish and I wanted to add as many things as I could think of that would appear in a Wizard's library and table.

See if you can spot them all;
- 100+ books
- Backpack
- 17 rolled up scrolls
- Skull
- 2 candles
- 9 ripped covers
- Crystal ball
- Cat
- Mouse
- Cheese 
- candle holder
- Wizard's hat
- Wizard's wand
- brass telescope
- table
- 5 keys and keyring
- playing cards
- mortar and pestle
- inkwell and pen
- magnifying glass
- medallion / necklace
- 2 small empty bottles
- 2 potion bottles
- smoke
- 2 different light sources (not including the candles)
- 2 money pouches
- gold coins
- silver coins
- drawers
- test tubes and holders
- hourglass
- large half filled bottle
- detailed map
- large spell book - with herb spells / potions
- bookmarks (1 large, 4 small)
- a planetarium on a parchment
- Leonardo Da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man" drawing on parchment

It was even a lot just writing them down! ;-)

Another homage to D&D and Fighting Fantasy "Choose your own adventure" books.  I love Fantasy art, and would love to do this as a job/full time

Would love to hear comments and critiques - thanks :-)
