Random little details sometimes will do the trick!

It'll be a bit of a wait! But stick around and I'll eventually get it done. Laughing out loud

Oh yes, I had fun with it! Especially the little striped tails on the aspiring lizards. Saved those little guys for last!

Thanks a lot ken! That green area is my favorite part. Smile

Rita, thanks!
Took a bit of mulling over before I could come up with something for the Hierophant, as it's not a card I can really relate to in its traditional form. So this was a tough one!

I don't know why.. but for some reason his foot is what really makes this picture for me ^_^

Man, I love this palette...those greens on the bottom are really gorgeous...fast becoming one of my faves, Steph (I mean, your stuff in general).

I can not wait for you to finish the whole series.
But I will wait, no matter how much it takes - It is the most beautiful tarot cards I have ever laid eyes on.

nice as always I love all the patterns of the watercolour turning into shapes and the colours themselves

Steph, to paint the Hierophant as a 'tree' is a thoughtful idea. And you painted it as well as always!

Art at its best.
