Queynte 15

Phew, at last… the unveiling of the next Fantasy Fanny! This is …….Number 15.

I still find them fascinating, as I never actually know what they’re going to look like until I finish them. I’ll paint it in pieces, a scarlet here, a magenta there, orange, lime green and lemon yellow, building it up like a jigsaw. Then when I’m near the end I’ll stand back from it and judge whether a colour should be darkened, or if black would enhance various areas. Then, when I’m happy with the colours, I add the white, and somehow that makes it gleam more. The white adds high-lights and interest to the bright colours. And I think the white adds more than that to the painting, as the white is where the light catches it, where it glistens……………

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.

    Amazing, as always! This one reminds me of a tropical rainforest – beautiful and a bit scary. It’s gorgeous, Jackie.

    It’s absolutely beautiful, Jackie. I agree with nitebyrd… it seems somehow untamed and primal.

    Another great Fantasy Fanny Jackie, and you are right about the little flashes of white adding something to the painting.

    Do you have many more of them waiting in the wings?

    Yeah Jackie.. I guess you n I have somethin in common with fannies, only I don’t normally paint ’em !! I have to agree with nitebyrd too. We as women should be proud of our bodies, from whatever angle we see them, If I didn’t know you as an Erotic artist, I’d be thinkin you were a Lesbian!!!!! Or are you?!!

    Fitzy – Thanksyou. Yes there are more to paint, and I count this as an on going project so I’m always willing to accept more participants who want their fanny (or willie?) painted.

    Indigo – Yes, we both have a large interest in fannies. As for your question……. I’m lots of things, but I’m not a lesbian.

    It must be great to have an ongoing project to be able to focus your attentions on and it must also keep you occupied when there is less work about.

    As for the Fantasy Willie, perhaps I will have to consider that when I come up for my sitting. Have you actually painted a Fantasy Willie yet?

    Jackie~ You are lots of things, an amazing ‘Erotic’ Artist being one of them… some thing to be Very Proud of!! As I’m sure you are.

    Fitzy – Yes it is and yes it does!

    No I’ve not done a Fantasy willie yet – you’d be the first one if you decide to have yours done!

    Oh Jackie, what have you done!

    You now have me thinking about commissioning a Fantasy Willie painting. Given that it would be a “Fantasy” Willie though, does that mean you could use a canvas larger than a postage stamp? lol

    Fitzy – That’s good that I’ve got you thinking! You’d be my first Fantasy Willie (of many, I hope!) – and I can do it any size you want – life size, or much much bigger, as big as the biggest canvas I can find, if you prefer!!! LOL

    Well from my email, it now seems as though I will indeed be your first Fantasy Willie, now that is certainly something I never thought I would be and I don’t remember my school careers officer ever mentioning that as a job! lol

    As for the canvas size then Fantasy Willie or not, I think in this instance small is better! lol

    Fitzy – Wow, my first Fantasy Willie! How exciting, a whole new ball game from the Fantasy Fannies!!!! 🙂

    I’ll have a look to see what size canvas’s are available……

    lol I guess it will be a whole new ball game for you in more ways than one!

    Extra small would be a good size!
