Art Journal Play

I was busy playing in in my art journal over the weekend, whilst it was cold and wet in London. I wanted to throw as much colour around as possible and use a number of different art supplies found in my ‘woman cave’ to make a few mixed media pieces.

This one was made using Dylusions ink sprays, painted paper cuts, stamps, collage, watercolour pencils and stencils etc

This fairy collage mixed media page was an art journal spread that I started many years ago, when the only art supplies I had were Inktense blocks, watercolours, coloured pencils and gel pens.. I finished it off with some paper cuts.

I’m hoping to make some more fun pages like this in the future. :)

Video Tutorial – Make a paper cut wing from scratch :)

Hello, I hope you are all well and enjoying mid-summer :) It was a bit wet and cold in London this weekend plus I hurt my leg in a fall on the Strand in central London (what a sight, I was sprawled all over the pavement) so I stayed in and painted lots of colourful art journal pages (to be published here soon).

I also discovered free demos on my xbox! so I ahem ‘tested’ a few of them and will be getting the full versions of Diablo III and DMC soon :)

Here is the video tutorial for my paper cut wing template, I show you how to draw the wing feathers and prepare them for cutting on an electronic cutter, part 2 includes adding the feathers to the base in an ‘artistic interpretation’ of a real wing :) If you want to just go ahead and cut the wing template without drawing it first, my SVG files are here

Video – Speed painting a grunge layered stencil background

Watch me paint this layered stencil background. I didn’t manage to finish the painting as I knocked a whole pot of black paint onto the carpet… oops! At least the floor now looks artistic :)

New Painting – Angel Guy

I finally finished my angel guy.. I manified him a bit more, but I think he may have looked more interesting as an elf/alien in drag. Will upload a speed paint soon angel guy conor mclain sebastian morgenstern painting joanne seale

New Painting – Work in Progress, a male angel

I’ve been working on this male face for a few days, its only the second male I’ve painted so I still have to tweak his features a bit. I think he looks very feminine which could be due to his shaped eyebrows, the shading around his eyes and the slightly pouted lips. I’ve also been filming the process which is good because it stops me from rushing it :) and I want to upload a speed paint once it’s finished. I worked in acrylics and tried to get a good likeness of the model/dancer Conor Mclain who is currently auditioning to play Sebastian Morgenstern in a ‘Mortal Instruments’ spin off series called ‘Shadowhunters’, I’m hoping he gets the part!!!conor mclain sebastian morgenstern painting joanne seale
