The evolution of the Two of Wands from my upcoming Tarot deck.
Like most of my work I start with a pencil sketch. I’d taken inspiartion of this piece from photos of several different ceremonial skulls I’d come across.
Next up, stage 1.
Adding in that background.
Setting the mood.
Some artists listen to music when they work. For me it’s either audio books or a podcast.
Speaking of podcasts, I highly suggest the NoSleep Horror podcast! I love it and I’ve listened to quite a few episodes while painting my Tarot cards. Here is the address for Nosleep in case you want to give them a listen to https://www.thenosleeppodcast.com
Above is the finished card. My deck is as of yet unnamed, but I promise it will be named soon. All the subjects for the cards are original hand painted pieces done in oil on mixed media paper. If you’d like to buy prints of the finished cards you may do so here by clicking on paypal.me/JWINNETTCREATE and paying me $25.00. The price includes shipping and handling of the print. You can see and choose more prints at Tarot, a true conduit of life and death. All prints are 11×17 on heavy cardstock perfect for framing!
You will also be able to buy prints at the 2018 Monsters and Merriment Show Saturday, September 29th, 10am-7pm inside The Natchez Winery at Fontanel, Nashville, TN. For more information go to http://www.monstersandmerriment.com Admission is FREE! See you there!
