second one in the series
King of Hearts
king of hearts is a rather tragic one, its about hope, love and betrayal and when thing get worse suicide seems like the only option option. In this collage the king of hearts is in a sort of retrospection , the clock on the right hand side points to his thoughts 'all time he is thinking about love'.

on the technical side i tried stretching the watercolor paper , the height of crest and troughs was very less this time. But no matter what you do they seem inevitable. Guys you have any better solution ?

Keshava

Do you know how to traditionally stretch water-colour paper?

Great series of collages Keshava- guess King of Clubs is next - I like how you explain the meanings of the different Kings - Some really good touches like the fingerprints on K of Diamonds. I guess you know that the standard deck of playing cards is based upon the Tarot which in itself was a way to remember Hermertic Knowledge stemming from Egypt
