New Painting * Elephant Hawk Moth – Acrylic on Canvas

I love painting moths! It has been a while since I’ve made a nature painting so I decided to paint a Elephant Hawk-Moth!

The colours are delicious, like strawberry and lemon sorbet, it’s form is so sublime and aerodynamic that I decided to accentuate the lines to create an almost arrow-like shape.

It makes me wonder how many millions of years it took for nature to create something of such perfection. Can you imagine if you or I were given that task??

This will be the first canvas that I am putting up for sale, I am learning to let go of my paintings and offer them to new homes :)

New Painting – The Jewel in the Lotus

Hello! Joanne here, I cant believe I didn’t post this painting yet, as it was completed some weeks ago.

It was inspired by a Life Book 2019 lesson and will also be available as an Art For Your Screens Digital download.

TBT** Ostara carrying the springtime in her hair :)

I made this painting several years ago when I had just starting painting, it was part of a Life Book 2014 lesson taught by Tamara Laporte, I made my version into the goddess Ostara and she is carrying the springtime in her hair!! I love this painting so much, I might even turn it into a greetings card!! :)

Bronze leaping cat, Zhou Dynasty, China 400 bc painting

Hi all, I’m sharing some of my painted sketches from a few months ago starting with this one of a bronze leaping cat, I saw it at the British Museum and adored the design, style, aesthetic, the form and colour. It is simply adorable so I decided to sketch it too..
I love this cat..

Handmade Green Party Poster :)

Hi all :) I’ve been working on a new paper cutting file whilst trying not to get distracted by my paints.. however I did allow myself painting on Earth Day (April 22nd) and painted a Green Party poster for the general elections which take place here in the UK on May 7th..

Hand made green party poster painting joanne seale

I used lots of different art supplies including matt medium, chalk paint, acrylics, watercolours, pencils, water-soluble crayon and acrylic ink. It now hangs in my window..

This weekend I attended a geology and electronics workshop where we created circuit boards which pick up changes in the earths geomagnetic fields and then tested them at a wooded archaeological site in London.

Here are some photos
