Drawing challenge / Playing cards

Looking for a joker

As a child, i remember i always searched for the joker in a new 
pack of playing cards.

Lovely Ariane came up with this playful theme so 
please take a look at her wonderful blog for more.

Hope you all have a sunny weekend, here temperatures are rising high
and i will be working :( 
See you on Monday



  1. I am in love with the first images
    the colors of the old cards
    your drawings, just pencil lines
    so beautiful!
    your queens look so sophisticated
    love them!

    and like you
    I always look for the joker

  2. Oh, like me too looking first for the Joker!
    Dear Renilde,
    marvellous your Queens with a touch of humour! I giggle about Queen of spades's gesture. Something like a Scorpio...
    Wonderful even the Joker how he whirls the signs with a big smile!

    Thank you very much


  3. Oh my..these are all so decadent and and I love the women and their outfits..totally enchanting! Gorgeous as always Renilde..

  4. four ladies and one joker - that's asking for trouble... ;-)
    wonderful, wonderful paintings - the queens clothes with the card emblems are beautiful and mr. joker looks a little bit cheeky... I like him!
    nice weekend - inspite of working! :-) mano

  5. yes, i hear ya! ;)))
    although i'm never looking...
    i love those bustiers... cunning.

  6. I don't know why my comment disappeared!!!????????

    Renilde, this is marvellous!!!

    (here the days are not as cold, slowly approaching the spring, although winter is always lurking to give us cold overnight)

  7. Cheeky queen of spades - these are great!

  8. love the progression. love the finished piece.

  14. Doesn't this painting look great on that table Renilde! Your work is awesome as always. I've just scrolled up to see what other players have said, and I have to say that I can't think of anything more appropriate to say about your great offering for us all. Brilliant. N. xo
