New Painting** I Am Whole

This painting started out as a Life Book lesson on Frida Kahlo, but it sort of went in its own direction. I will be aking a video to explain this painting in more detail in the next few days.

New Painting * Rise From the Ashes

Hello everyone, I finished another Life Book inspired painting which I’ve named ‘From the Ashes’.
I painted it to explore the situations we can sometimes find ourselves in, when going through a hard time in life, we can feel destroyed, burnt to the ground in a pile of ash on the floor.
I wanted this painting to show how we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and renew ourselves, it takes courage, self-love and determination, but it is possible.

I talk about this more in the video linked below.

Life Book 2017 painting – Finding Peace

I finished another life book lesson! This painting represents finding peace within a busy urban environment, as some of you may know in 2015 I experienced a huge change in the peacefulness of my area when a concentrated flight path for Heathrow Airport was diverted to over my home with no warning!!! I am moving!!

New Painting – Life Book 2017

Hello everyone, it feels like ages since I’ve posted a painting here, so I have a lot of catching up to do and will be sharing some of my sketches and art journal work over the coming weeks.

I managed to make a new Life Book 2017 painting!! yay.. I am soo behind with these.
I tried a new technique with this painting, our teacher asked us to use water soluble crayons (I love these!!), charcoal and white paint to create a rather soulful image.

I took it a bit further by adding india ink that I tinted with the watercolour crayons, it was amazing… tinted india ink is such a beautiful media to work with and I found I could create more depth and contrast that I usually add to my paintings.

I will experiment with it some more..

soulful you painting joanne seale

New Painting – `We have each other’ Life Book 2017

I recently finished another Life Book 2017 painting Yay!
This one is called ‘We have each other’ and was originally supposed to be the blue elephant, but I decided to add a pink horse and cute little Fennec fox.
I named the painting ‘We have each other’ because the creatures are all so vastly different from their natural realistic counterparts that I figured they would have formed a sort of club of ‘Animals with differences’ :P and supported each other :)
