New Painting – Boy Riding Giraffe

Hello! I recently finished another painting! I tried to paint this boy on a giraffe in an illustrative style more suited to a children’s book.
It took a lot longer than I thought but I am very happy with the result and hope to make more in the future.
I have also linked the speed paint of this artwork below.

Mixed Media Painting – Temple of light

Hello, how is everyone today? I hope you are doing good!!
I recently finished this painting that was inspired by a Life Book lesson by Effy Wild! Although it looks nothing like the actual lesson…

shine your light temple of light painting art joanne seale

I wanted to show how we all have an inner light that can either be hidden, or we can let it shine brightly, enhancing and illuminating our daily lives whilst also shining on the lives of others.
Sometimes this can be scary as we can be afraid of opening our true selves to the world for fear of disapproval, however one of my teachers, the amazing Lisa Nichols!!

Put it so perfectly when she said, ‘When your light shines too brightly for some people, just hand them a pair of sunglasses” I love that sooo much. :)

Here is a quick speed paint of the artwork which was originally posted on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/

I have been posting snippets over on my instagram account here https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale

Including this Turntable Promarker sketch that I created during the summer last year :)

Heloooooo… again

Hi everyone, it has been a bit tumbleweed here because I sort of switched to Instagram https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/ however I will be updating my blog, website and youtube channels over the next few weeks.

Life has been very hectic as I prepare for moving home.. I found a new area to move to and possibly a new property.

Hopefully…. all going well I will be able to share more details with you over the coming months… fingers crossed..

I am soo behind with my online art courses that I will be dedicating much of the early part of this year to completing my Jane Davenport courses and actually doing Life Book 2018 as I think I only made about 2 paintings from the whole course… terrible..

I’ve also been streaming video games on Twitch.. I started gaming in 2014 when someone introduced me to The Elder Scrolls – Skyrim.. and well what can I say.. I’m now a gamer.. if you want to keep up with my gameplay and chat etc, please hop over to https://www.twitch.tv/cymarin_twitch

Also having changed jobs 2 years ago I am currently working in a new part of London which has completely refreshed me, so much so that I started a new website dedicated to it.

Please head over to my new site Wonder London Life to keep up with my adventures in London!! https://wonderlondonlife.com

I also started a paper design site called Paper Hospitality Designs.. which you can find here https://www.paperhospitalitydesigns.com

So yeah, I have been really busy hence my no show on this blog but rest assured.. times they are a changing.. lol

I will be back!! Soon!!

xx Jo

Helloooo!! Long time!!

Hello!! It has been so long since I’ve been here I think I’ve almost forgotten how to paint!! Gulp!! not really :P

I have been soooo busy, earlier in the year I started a new hobby business that was so time consuming and energy sapping that I literally collapsed internally and had to rest for a few months.

Luckily that business is now up and running as a B2B venture, as only just this weekend I finalised some of the PR and Marketing aspects of its core user outreach.

Unfortunately I also decided to start a new project at the same time! lol (this always happens) so I will be no less busy during the up coming months :/

I tried and failed to move.. again!! lets hope I have more success in the spring, its just a matter of deciding where to move to as I don’t really want to leave London but may have to :(

I’m still making things though and more importantly going to see new things! You can follow my adventures on my instagram account hereĀ https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/

Enjoy!

And before I go here is a watercolour painting I made a few months ago featuring an illustration I saw in a shop window on Regent Street.. I do so love Regent Street lol

Bye for now!!

Benin Bronze Leopard Head

Hello all! I hope you are well?

I have mostly been looking for new areas to move to, and I am happy to say that I think i have found the perfect area!! It only took 2 years of searching lol.

I will share more details when I actually move though!!

I recently updated my Artefacts Art Journal with this new painting of a Bronze Leopard Head, it was made in the Kingdom of Benin, West Africa sometime around the 17th century…

I spotted it at the British Museum along with a number of other Benin Bronzes, I made a video on the whole of the African Galleries a few years ago which I have linked below…
