New Paper Animation!! Running Horse….

Hello everyone!! I hope you are well?
I’ve been fairly busy prepping a few new projects and creating content for Social October, you can view this on my instagram here!

Over the weekend I decided to create a paper animation featuring a horse from one of Muybridge’s famous photography experiments!
I started by cutting the horse shapes using my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine

I then created a basic grid on card and lined up the images whilst filming them on my camcorder.
I then created the animation below in my editing software.
I hope you like it!

What did you do over the weekend, anything creative?
Please share your projects!!!

New Whimsical Horse Painting

I’ve just finished creating this delightful whimsical horse in watercolours, I layered the transparent layers of paint to make a dreamy floaty background then sketched a very whimsical floaty horse, I used opaque gouache for the highlights and watercolour pencils for the details.
The caption ‘Be Free’ was added in a mixture of gouache and watercolour and was inspired by the carefree and playful pose of the horse.
I think of it as a reminder to be playful in real life, as this can be very freeing, make time for play! :)

New horse sketch..

Helloooo! Happy Saturday!

I’ve literally just finished sketching this horses head in charcoal, it’s the first time I used charcoal and it’s so lush.

The background was made from layers of gold, yellow and brown paint.

I need to make another of these in black paint as that was the original idea, but will keep this one too.

The horse is sketched from one of the Elgin Marbles at the British Museum.

New Painting * – Be The Queen Of You

Hello everyone! I hope you are well? I am doing good and looking forward to creating lots of new juicy arts and crafts for you!
Today I would like to show you my latest ‘Curvy Girl’ arts and quotes painting.
She is an expression of how it is good to take possession of our self and how the most important real estate we can invest in is ourselves.
‘Be the Queen of you’ means taking full responsibility for our lives and being held accountable to ourselves.

be the queen of you  art painting Joanne seale

I painted her with what some might say are ‘thicc’ thighs as an expression and statement of body positivity and acceptance.
I can imagine that growing up many women with large thighs may have been called ‘thunder thighs’ or ‘Chaka Khan thighs’ but today we can all celebrate the gift of the large thighs that we have been given, just because… :)
