A change is as good as a rest

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! πŸ™‚

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!

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 itÒ€ℒs 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 itÒ€ℒs 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 am male and I prefer a female doctor every time I go. They tend to be more empathic and attentive. Some prefer a female professional for various reasons – homophobic, getting cheap thrills, novelty of being attended to, whatnot. However, I opted for a male doctor to do my vasectomy. πŸ˜‰

    Nolens Volens – Mmm…. I can understand what you’re saying, that women are more empathic and attentive towards a man. And also you’re making me smile regarding the male doctor for the vasectomy…… more sympathetic there, than any woman!!! πŸ™‚

    I really nevcer thought about someone dpoing a painting on me…you know if I feel better with a woman or a man. I’ve been painted by female and made in the nude and I guess I liked it better with a woman, but she was my lover.

    I’ve done photo shoots nudes by a male photographer and it was okay…I think women are more sensual…and it’s not about just the raw nakedness of it all. There are those few men…that just knock your socks off too with their nude art.

    Ciao babe. fab post…I know I’m going to debate myself with this post. hehehe

    Spiky – Mmmm… I suppose its down to how comfortable you feel with the artist/photographer as well. And whether you mentally are happy being naked with a man or a woman (or either).

    But being painted by your lover is totally different….. its far more sensual, more loving, and has far more promise within the art of what has happened between you, what will happen in the future between you, and what is just about to happen in a very short time when his particular drawing is finished…….. !!!!! πŸ™‚
