Autumn colours

The other week Indigo mentioned that she was interested in having a tee shirt with my “rainbow girl” image on it, so after a bit of investigating for the best result, I had one printed for her. And I’m delighted that she’s very pleased with it and wanting to show it off, so much so, that she’s had a photograph taken to show her wearing it. And here it is for everyone to see. I had wanted the image on a black tee shirt but due to some problems at the print shop, that I didn’t fully understand, they could only do it on white. A pity, but its bright and effective either way.
I love the autumnal colours at the moment – especially in the bright golden sunshine we’ve had recently. The trees really look their glorious best in their shades of warm and vibrant yellows, intense golds, bright oranges, scandalous scarlets, deep dark reds the colour of old blood and the delights of rusty burnt siennas. Its so inspiring to see the colours, and lifts the spirits when they have the backdrop of a rich blue sky behind them. I’m in the mood for painting them all!
A woman came to see me earlier today regarding a commission she wants doing of a dog for a Christmas present. Christmas already – and its only October! Its a simple drawing she wants, and I’m more than happy to do it for her, as I’ll tackle virtually any subject, even if it is as vanilla as this is. She isn’t aware that I’m an erotic artist, and I had no need to tell her. And as far as I’m concerned, it’s not an important issue. I’m an artist. I paint pictures. If someone wants something painting, I’ll do it. Whatever it is. If they want something erotic I’ll enjoy doing it more. But either way, I’m just glad they come to me.

Tonight I’ll be doing some erotic drawing. I need to get back into creating art again, and the best way to do it is to do some life drawing, except the way I do it, its erotic drawing! Then I can get on with my erotic landscapes properly because I’ll be in the right mind set for erotic art. It’s like a warm up for the jobs in hand. So………. what poses shall I do? Mmmm……. I haven’t decided yet, but I do know they won’t be vanilla. Perhaps a prop or two will help. Shall I go for sexy lingerie, sexy footwear, a blindfold, handcuffs or a riding crop…………….. and maybe, I’ll incorporate the autumnal shades I saw earlier – a hint of colour to lift the picture, yes, I think that will work nicely!

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.
