Half dressed is sexier

I was in the mood for doing a sexy drawing the other night and had an idea in mind, so when my model turned up, suggested it to her, which immediately brought a wicked grin to her face! She’s used to posing for me totally naked, or maybe with one item of clothing in place, and the fact I wanted her to keep her clothes on was a novelty in itself ….. but I wanted her to pose with her clothes in disarray, one hand down her undone jeans, and the other at her breast, with her mouth slightly open and a look of concentration on her face. And that was how I drew her, and was delighted with the end result, because although only part of one breast was on show, it was a far sexier picture than if she had been fully naked. I did the drawing on a pale blue background, using only two coloured pencils – one in sanguine, one in black, which gave me enough tones I needed for the image, especially as the black was only utilised for her skimpy top, and the black leather belt of her open jeans, adding a nice contrast to the paleness of her skin. I’ve called the drawing “Lustful thoughts” and am delighted with the result – another one to illustrate Lucy’s stories, hopefully.

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.
