Tarot celebration

img_9786Now Fortitude’s sky has clouds and my model has legs and the bruin is becoming more defined. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s work, when I hope to get another layer of sky down, and to develop some mountains in the distance. There’s almost enough information down to move into the colour stages of painting the figure.

Wouldn’t it be a blast to have a celebration each time I finish a card? We’ll invite people to come and eat and drink and to see the gradual accumulation of the deck as it includes the entire trump group. Each event will have as its theme the card that has been most recently produced, so we’ll have a Hanged Man night, a Priestess night, a Magician night, and so on…

No canvas has shown up yet – I’m totally impatient for the package to arrive.
