Like buses – three come at once!

Nothing happens for ages and then three come at once, and before you ask, no, I’m not talking about a threesome, I’m referring to me being on a roll this week producing artwork! I’ve done three drawings that I’m really happy with and they are the one’s I’m referring to! I’m working on a set of paintings for the gallery I’ve recently found and hope soon to take them along to see what reaction they get. I’m thinking about them like a “pick and mix” – so anyone could buy all of them, or a couple, three, or four, and they would all go together in any mix as a set, and would look like they belong together. It’s taken me a while to think about the set as a whole, and as a collection but now I’m really happy about the way they pull together and work well as a group. They are all white on black drawings with a touch of red in them somewhere to add interest and add to the raunchy feel of them – which is why the set is going to be called “Scarlet women”. I just love that title!

The first drawing is the back view of a woman in a corset with a tiny black thong showing off her lovely bum and black elbow length gloves accentuating the hint of her red jewellery – thick chunky bracelet at wrist and the small earrings – are they rubies? She’s raising her champagne glass to toast someone or something – so the title just HAD to be “Bottoms up!” – I adore that name and just couldn’t resist it!!!! It makes me smile.
The second drawing is of a woman lying face down on a sofa, her gorgeous bum rounded and inviting, her legs slightly akimbo she’s naked except for just a pair of red high heeled shoes – a delicious invite for her lover! Her face is hidden by her blonde hair, but she’s looking back over her shoulder in invitation, her eyes glinting in knowledge of her desirability. I’ve done this drawing before and it’s on my website, but this one has proper red shoes and is called “Red red shoes” in acknowledgement of that.
The third drawing is more raunchy and depicts a woman feeling the heat, she’s fingering her long hair as it falls down over her face, her slip is falling down off her shoulders, revealing her rounded breast and the nipple. Her mouth is open, her eyes closed in ecstasy. And her right hand reaches downwards….. This picture is called “Red hot”.
I love all these drawings for various reasons but I know which of the three I prefer best and the reasons why, but which do you like best?

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 also like them all but #3 is my favorite. She seems more relaxed and welcoming. The red high-lights are brilliant in all three. All are beautiful, as always, Jackie!

    Red Hot. Its a frontal, and immeasurably sensual. Looking at it just makes me want to urge her to put her hands between her legs!
