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! :)
Hello! In this post and video I will be showing you how to turn an SVG cutting file template into a watercolour painting.
All the details are in the video below!
I will also be giving away the resulting artwork below as part of the July edition of my ‘Art for your screens’ collection. Details coming soon.
Hello everyone! I hope you are well? I feel that I am finally on top of things after months of planning, preparing and creating.
I managed to create and launch a new website for my paper designs! It will see me expand from offering digital cutting files to providing finished products to the hospitality market. I am sooo excited!! :)
I also redesigned my website www.joanneseale.com to include new sections on my paper designs and my new greetings cards!!
I’ve been making greetings cards from my artwork for quite some time but have never made them available for use, more details will follow in a later post.
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!! :)
I made a video of myself painting the watercolour mix tape and there is a special visit to the Design Museum in London at the end.
I hope you enjoy it :)
I now have some original watercolour paintings of the Kudu Antelope in my etsy shop here

I started painting and drawing for the first time last year and its been a great journey so far.
I’ve mainly been using watercolour and inks but more recently I’ve discovered the joy of graphite pencils.
Oh yes, and different types of paper for painting on, my most recent discovery is Glassine paper, I just love the way it feels and sounds when you crinkle it a bit… :)
here are a few recent sketches
