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
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! :)

Hey all! I have finally started Life Book 2018!! YAY it was a delayed start whilst I launched my greetings cards and my new paper hospitality products.. so pleased I completed this!!
This bear presents a very good message that ALL CHANGE IS GOOD.. change can be hard especially when it takes you out of your comfort zone, and initially we want to put out heads in the sand and avoid all discomfort. But its amazing how the act of change itself can be really nourishing and fortifying in the long-term, especially when it is done in consistent little steps :)
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!! :)
