Filling a void

I haven’t done any erotic drawing for weeks, for various reasons, but last night did one I’m reasonably (and only reasonably) happy with. Normally I do drawings with my model facing me, but last night I felt I wanted her with her back to me, facing away from the viewer, to draw an enigmatic and pensive pose. The model struggled with the pose, although I thought she’d find it easy enough, and so did she to start with. It didn’t seem a difficult position to be in – just utilising the shape of her thighs as her hand lay loosely between the top of her legs. Is it an erotic pose or a life drawing one? I can’t decide. I suppose it depends on what you consider her hand might be doing. Its an odd pose perhaps, the white of her legs making an “L” shape, and a large void to the right accentuating the darkness. Usually a title comes easily to me, but I can’t think of one as yet – one will come in time. It usually does.

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.

    yeah.. she looks like she might be in pain or is that the expression of spent pleasure? Nicely done and yes very ‘erotic!’

    Indigo – It’s supposed to be spent pleasure, or maybe pleasures to come! Glad you like it, and think its erotic.

    I would say it’s an erotic life drawing?

    As for a title, well as your model is facing away from the viewer, how about something along the lines of ‘Hidden Pleasure’….?

    And as for your comment as to what I would do on the back seat of a coach on the way to ‘Erotica’ – of course I would sit there very demurely like the good girl I am!

    Tee hee!!!

    Racy redhead – If it feels erotic to any degree – its an erotic drawing, so thanks for confirming that for me! I like your title – I had considered “Pleasures to come”!

    I don’t think you “do” demure – well you might do for the vanilla people in your real life, but as your persona of Racy Redhead – I don’t think there’s ANY chance of you being demure in the slightest!!! Thank goodness!!! lol

    Heheh I would definitely say it’s erotic, but then I have a dirty mind, and I’m sure I could make a story about it 😉

    Lucy – Ok, we’ll count it as erotic then, and I’ll eagerly await your dirty story about it, I’m sure it’ll be a good one!
