Sunna Picture

Designed for a collaborative tarot deck based on the mythology of the Norse Jotun (Giants). This is Sunna, pictured on the Sun card.

Rendered in water-mixable oil paints this and the moon card were the first paintings I've done using layers of paint on canvas. They took about 5 months to complete from the initial design stages through to sending in for inclusion in the set.

The back-lighting was a real challenge, as was painting horses for the first time! I love the colour scheme though.
