Ostara Tarot and More Palettes

I have been waiting for the Ostara Tarot mass market edition for some time. It was created by four Canadians so I felt obliged to support this creation, but also the animal depictions in the deck are exquisite. The Schiffer edition seems to have problems with missing or duplicate cards and the silver foil along the edges sticking, so I hope I can get a good copy that has no problems.

In the meantime, I am not fond of beige and brown or rust colours, but I feel I am missing them from my palettes. One of the reasons I was attracted to the Badgers Forest Tarot apart from the gorgeous paintings of animals, was because of the saturated rusts and browns, which are not my usual colours, so today I took some scans of favourite cards from that deck and made colour palettes to use in the Apple colour picker.

These are the desktop screenshots of them in the two apps I used to generate a 20-colour palette for each. They are very subtle and not my usual so I’ll try to break out of my comfort zone and use taupes and browns and russet colours for a while in draws.

This fellow on the Three of Wands in the Ostara seems to have things well in hand. Yup, he’s waving that magic colour wand and harnessing the power of wind and water, lassoing the elements and navigating the currents of colour palettes.

Hmmmm I notice he seems to have defaulted to the usual purples and greens in the background. What about the rust and brown palettes froglet, what happened to them?

You can’t teach an old frog new tricks.
