Today’s Tarot Sketch is the Ten of Cups!
You may have notice that I’ve started using colour in the latest sketches. I’ve been trying out a great iPad app called Paper 53 and am really enjoying how easy it is to sketch something out very quickly. The app let’s you organise your sketches or notes in little moleskine like notebooks, so I’ve created one specifically for my tarot sketches. Maybe I’ll work out how to share the whole thing when we come to the end of this exercise.
Again the point of this exercise isn’t to produce a work of art or even something that captures the full meaning of the card. It’s simply to visually portray what this particular card is bringing up for me at this particular point in time. I find that my relation to certain cards changes depending on what’s going on in my life. Some cards have more meaning at different times than others and some just don’t have any resonance at all.
For today’s card immediate images that came to mind where of the rainbow indicating happiness. Mastery of the sea of emotions! So I’ve shown the rainbow waves on the surface of the sea and the cups appearing beneath the surface, floating on the surface and hovering above it all to indicate that an emotional balance and wholeness has been achieved at all levels – both conscious and unconscious.
