Thinking of naked women

Always looking for new ways of doing things I often go on art workshops – sometimes it might be a subject I’m not that interested in but I always come away having learnt some new technique for painting or drawing. The workshop the other day was landscapes in acrylic and I knew it would be helpful whilst I’m contemplating the best way to do the erotic landscape I’m currently working on. And there were quite a few other people there that I knew, so its good to see how they tackle painting a landscape, although they were all thinking hills and trees and I’m thinking of naked women! Because for me, painting a picture, whatever it is, is usually enhanced if I can find a way of incorporating a naked woman in it! And of course, its not helped by the fact that a lot of people I know, also know that’s what I do…. so then I get a challenge – “Ok, Jackie, make this one erotic! “And then, of course, that’s what I’ll do with it, and that’s exactly what I did with this one. The picture is ok, nothing special, its just a working piece to try techniques and effects, but at the end of the session I spent a little time playing around and put in some of my typical images……… just to see what I could do……. and you know what? …………. The people who have viewed it so far, have seen erotic images that I didn’t intend, and perhaps missed the ones I did! I love it when that happens…………….

So……………….. what do YOU see in 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 see the naked woman lying on the rocks.

    As soon as I saw it was a landscape when it popped up on blog lines, I went and looked straight for the nekkidness!

    I see two more obvious women (cloud and on rock) but the whole lower landscape is erotic to me. It reminds me of hips, thighs, buttocks – the curves of a woman.

    My first thought was that the foreground was one giant pussy and then I noticed the lady lying naked on the lip of one side of it.

    I see the little lady lying on the rocks… but it could just be my rudeness but it kinda looks as though she’s lying in the folds of a woman’s ‘bits.’

    It’s a beautiful picture.
