Getting tied up

The nice thing about bondage, as far as an erotic artist is concerned, is that the ropes can make such interesting patterns and shapes. This was certainly the case with my latest white on black drawing. I wanted to make an interesting diamond pattern down the front of the female torso and between her naked breasts. And also to shine a light upon the model in such a way that the white of the ropes were the central part of the picture with her body the paler part of the image. To create this I had to shine the light from one side and lower down to high-light her breasts and thighs, whilst losing the dark side of her body into the black of the paper, adding interest to the image and taking away what would have been a very boring symmetrical picture if I’d made the two sides of her body even in tone. To blind-fold her certainly added to the erotic intensity of the image, and the fact that the lower knot is pulled into the flesh of her crotch certainly makes the image powerfully sexy too. I’ve called the picture “Daunted” – it seems the best summing up of what’s happening in it.

And for some reason, the model said that after a couple of hours in this pose she’s seriously considering taking up macrame………

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.

    Yet another example of your amazing talent, although I guess it might have been hard work for the model.

    Hornymaleuk – thankyou, yes it was. She couldn’t have a break until I’d finished the drawing, as the whole drawing had to be done in one go, for obvious reasons!
