Wormwood Expansion

I’m moving super slowly this last couple of days, feeling weary and worn out, but I’ve expanded the Wormwood on the left of the canvas and laid a layer of dark leaves down on the right. I’ve yet to add colour to the plants, but this will go fairly quickly now.

I thought I’d add a closer shot of the citadel in the Magician painting because the previous image doesn’t reveal a lot of detail. The guide lines I laid down for the clouds will disappear in the painting, leaving those strange cotton wool balls puffs across the sky. The flags bring the wind down to the earth and water, while the Magician is conjuring with a bowl of fire.
