Drat! I forgot I had to wait for my umber wash to dry! I hate that!
Tomorrow, or Wednesday then.
In the meantime, here is a close-up of the towers in the raven and snake eyes. It’s a detail that will never be seen in the completed cards,I’m sure, it will just be too small, but I, we, will always know its there!
This actually gives me some time to work on the 7 of Disks. I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to do but I think it’s going to be hard. I want it to look like an old raven. What does an old raven look like? I can imagine that it has extra thick scaly feet and dull, seen better days feathers, maybe a scarred beak, but what else? If it doesn’t look old I think the effect will be lost. It could also start falling into owl territory; oh look at this black owl. Not good. Not necessarily bad though come to think of it.
I am still thinking about repainting the 7 of Cups. I totally see that one. I like the old one just as time goes by I think I can do better. Screw it, I’ve already obliterated anything resembling a reasonable time period in which to finish this deck!
I am going to go work on them now!
