Sex in the landscape

While I’m spending time thinking about the poses I’m going to use for Hornymaleuk and my female model when I draw them, I’m considering the lines and shapes I want to incorporate in my images. And I know its basically a human landscape I’m drawing….. when I draw a supine woman I see flat plains of stomach, incorporating the lake of navel, rising up to the gently rolling hills of breasts topped with a citadel of nipple over-looking the plains below, the soft contours of arm and shoulder, leading down to fingers of land stretching out from hands to form bridges and arches. The land slopes down to a dense copse of trees at the base of the of groin, hiding a steep ravine and ferned grotto from which flows a gushing waterfall tumbling down to the deep dark valley below…………

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.

    Your post brought back happy memories!
    I have used the term “Project Dales” when refering to plans for a sexual encounter. Our overseas readers may not know that the Dales consist of high mountain peaks and some deep interesting valleys, sometimes in shade 🙂

    Dearest Jackie,
    I love the way you’ve sequenced the details of that lovely piece of art in this post, from what seems at first like a typical landscape, until we get to see the whole wonderful work.
    And such compelling writing — you really do have a gift for descriptive writing that’s also exciting to read!
    I’ve recently begun creating seascapes and my years of figure drawing help me actually feel the swell and flow of the waves at sea, much like the luscious dip off a woman’s hip down into her waist or the gentle rise of her breast into the air. Seascapes feel like landscapes, with sensual movement added.
    Love your website and blog.

    Hornymaleuk – Yes, and I bet you prefer pot-holing to mountain climbing!!!!

    honoranddesire – I’m glad you like my landscape, and accompanying words! I think all artists improve their landscapes by practicing figure drawing, and vice versa. Your words regarding sensual seascapes are really interesting and intriguing – the way you can feel the rise and fall of the sea in your figure drawings….

    Jackie, that drawing is one of the best I’ve seen from you. I love the use of dark colors and shadowed textures to draw the eye into the scene, and the pose is so alluring . . .

    Cherrie – Thankyou! It’s actually part of a set of drawings I’m still working on – regarding the colours eminating from a woman, before, during and after sex!
