Since I first started doing the Fantasy Fannies a couple of months ago, all I’ve been thinking about is them . Female art. Very abstract feminine female art. But this week brings with it the wind of change, and I am now involved in some masculine art. I have been asked to draw a guy. He’s never been drawn naked before, but he’s interested in art and has decided that he would like to be drawn. He’s led an interesting life, and I think he will enjoy this experience. He wants a woman to draw him, rather than a man. And to start with, when I heard that, I wondered if there was an “ulterior motive” – because I am very aware that some guys might think that if there’s a woman who’s an erotic artist drawing them, then they might get more than a painting out of it! So I have to make that clear from the start, that it is “work” for me, and it will be “hard work” for them. He understands that. He says he is feeling some trepidation at meeting me. I can understand that, its a new experience for him. Its all quite normal for me. But drawing him will be a first for me – he’s a chap in his 70’s, and when he asked me if I’d ever painted a pensioner before, I had to say I hadn’t!
And to add to this, this morning I had a younger guy ring me wanting me to do a “bedroom picture” for him. We were on the phone for an hour, and it took a lot of gentle chit-chat to find out what he wanted exactly. He probably has never had the sort of conversation we had, before, and I must admit it struck me as amusing and novel! Because his “bedroom picture” was more than just a sensual nude sitting in a chair, artfully lit. He was a bit more specific than that. He wanted a woman in the picture, a woman with very large breasts, and he wanted her “doing something” – ok, I agreed, I could do that. What exactly did he imagine she was doing? Well, it seemed he wanted her doing something quite specific, to a man to be exact. And he wanted the man to be himself. Ok, I see, well yes, that was possible, I could do that, and agreed it was indeed a “bedroom picture”! He said he was happy to pose for the drawing, which helps, because if I’m drawing him, it might as well be him. He’s never posed before, and thought that the opportunity would be “good” for him. I can see that he might think that! But I made it very clear that it was highly unlikely that I was going to find a model, a) specifically one who fits his description of the woman of his dreams, who was b) going to pose, and c) going to do what he specifically wanted. But the point is that I can take various images from various sources and put them all together, to compose the image he wants. So I probably deflated his fantasy, in reality anyway. But I know I can create it on paper for him. And that’s what I do. I paint peoples dreams. He’s come to me with an idea, and we’ve discussed it, I can picture it, he can picture it, so now I have to get inside his head, and draw that image on paper so that everytime he looks at it on his bedroom wall, he feels hot and horny, looking at that image…………………………… Should be fun! 🙂
But I get the impression from the conversations with these two guys, that they feel happier being drawn by a woman artist , than a male artist. And I can understand that, most hetrosexual men don’t seem to be happy being naked infront of another man. They feel more comfortable with a woman…. it makes sense……. and gives me more work!
