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.

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… :)

New Painting * Love in a time of Ebola – Acrylic on Canvas

Hello!!! Long time! I hope everyone is well?
Things have been a bit quiet here but lots has been happening behind the scenes most of which have been documented on my instagram here
https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale

But I will try to start a new weekly news roundup for my blog and website. Watch this space!!

So this new painting sort of evolved from an abstract art exercise that developed into a painting about current affairs.
It is called ‘Love in a time of Ebola’ and features acrylic on canvas.. Yes I am now working regularly on canvas!!
The painting sort of just appeared but it started with the eyes.
I don’t know where the Ebola reference came from but it was probably something that I had been reading and thinking about.
The 2 figures sort of look like either space travellers or androids and that meant something to me too.
But art is really about what you see in an image.
This painting is about affection, needs, love, distance, restriction, health, humanity etc etc.
