The difference between men and women

I’m currently having very interesting dialogues with hornymaleuk about how I’m going to draw him. He’s wondering if I’m going to draw him in all his rampant naked glory. If he can keep that pose for the hour or two that it’ll take me to draw him I shall be well impressed!!! Until I see the figure I’m going to draw I can’t say what the pose will be – it differs for everyone because I will need to find their attributes and enhance them (although with hornymaleuk I’ve got a good idea what that is going to be already…..). And its also very different as to whether I’m drawing a man or a woman. For women the erotic image will usually be more subtle and feminine, the hint of things unsaid, an item of clothing (because women are so much easier to dress sexily than men) or of footwear or jewellery. For a man to look erotic the image will have to be more blatant (otherwise its just a life-drawing pose). So the challenge is not to draw what I see before me but to enhance it to make it artistic and erotic. The best way to define the different styles of drawing is to say that “life drawing” is a naked figure in an everyday pose – sitting in a chair for example. If that figure is doing something blatantly sexual then its “pornographic” but if the figure is doing something subtly sexual then its “erotic” and I think far more sexy and interesting than the blatant pose. I’m really looking forward to drawing hornymaleuk, because I know already his pose will be blatantly masculine erotic, and very sexy for it!

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.

    I have never posed naked for an artist before. I’m looking forward to the experience but a little nervous. I guess the first few minutes will be the worst. However, I’m sure you will help me establish, and maintain, a suitable pose.
