Excellent representation! I hope you don't mind, but I used your image for a blog post I did on the 10 of Swords… it can be found here: mirrorsofconsciousness.wordpre…

The site is new and doesn't get a lot of traffic yet, but I have linked the picture directly to your DA.

If you prefer that I *not* use your image, which is fair, I will remove it… but I hope not!

Absolutely beautiful painting, you use oil amazingly! Oh a whole tarot pack like this would be gorgeous (although an impossibly big undertaking)

I don't like it to see 10 of swords in my own cards. ^^ But this picture is very amazing. Great work.

I love the hair and the gesture in this. What colors do you use for this pale skin tone?
Reply
:icondavepalumbo:
davepalumbo Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2011
Thanks! I think these skin tones were combinations of Alizarin Crimson and Windsor Green (deep shadows), brilliant pink, cobalt turquoise light, nickle titanium yellow, and titanium white.

there *may* have been a dash of Cad Scarlet in there too, looks like it
