Hello!! I hope you are doing good and are enjoying the crisp January days!!
In my latest tutorial we will be making these gorgeous Standing Hearts!!
They are a celebratory standing ovation for your own heart, thanking it for all the beats it has given and the beats yet to come!
It is a promise to look after your heart with good food and exercise, and to protect it from harm, whilst keeping it open to all the goodness that life has to offer!
I hope you enjoy making this heart with me, and I would love to see your version of the Standing Heart!!
Here is the tutorial video
Hello everyone!! I hope you are well and enjoying the very first days of a new decade!!
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions this year as I think every day should be a opportunity for newness!
Can you imagine how good it feels to wake up in the morning and step into a new you? So that by bed time you have become a slightly better version of yourself?
That one step can be a great journey all of its own.
Maybe you have decided to start arting for the first time?
In this video I can show you how to use simple watercolor pencils to create some colourful bookmarks!!
I hope you have a go at making them and please do share them in the Facebook group!
I didn’t use references for my fishes but if you need some ideas to work from here is a link to a Pinterest search for colourful fishes
Hello Again! I hope you are well and enjoying the start of 2020!! Whooo
Today I would like to share with you a new tutorial video specially for those of you who want to start arting for the first time.
I started my art journey in 2012 when I bought a tin of watercolor pencils and a pad of paper, my creative outlets at that time were video, creating visuals for concerts and events as well as producing short videos for TV companies etc.
I wanted to expand my creative vocabulary and learn to paint and draw, watercolor pencils seemed the easiest way to start and I want to show how you too can start a colourful art journey with a handful of pencils and some paper.
Today we will be painting my Kudu antelope design which I have linked below the video.
Please feel free to save this and print it for colouring with watercolor pencils.
In the video I will show you how to get started.
If you would like to share your creations please feel free to join the facebook group here
and upload your first paintings! It’s soooo exciting!
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!! :)
