From Smirk to Smile - Progress pictures for my new Sun Card

in #art21 days ago (edited)

I am still working on my cards for the Tarot deck that I am doing with three other artists. We are hand painting most of them and it can take months for just one. I just finished my Sun card. It took forever. My muse (my son) had such a naughty smile and it took for ever to make it just right for this particular card. I thought I would share some of the images of the work in progress.

In this first picture you can see the beginnings of the painting. I am working a dark neutral color and white over a burnt sienna background. You can also see that my muse is being a little too naughty for his role.
