Beautiful dreams

The last but one time I saw her, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I wanted her flat on her back with her legs in the air.

She complied, and naturally put her hand between her legs as she closed her eyes and smiled…….

And that was the pose I drew πŸ™‚

But, somehow it didn’t work. I think it was because I’d decided to work in natural light and it faded as I drew, so the lighting wasn’t definite, but too defused. The picture was……………….ok. Not good, but ………..ok.

This time when I saw her, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her. I wanted her flat on her back with her legs in the air.

And I’d try it again. But this time with better fixed artificial lighting. And I’d get it right this time.

So, that is what we did. And I was perfectly happy with that idea. Until I walked past her to get to the power socket to plug the light in.

As I turned, and saw her lying there, with the light on her. I knew I’d made a huge mistake. HUGE!

The pose was far far far better from the other side!!!!!!

So, I set up my easel on the other side of her, and drew her from there.

And here’s the picture. Far far better than the first (which I’ve now ripped up and thrown away!). The picture is simple, and yet effective. Its got some lovely lines in it, and just the basic light catching her womanly body, lighting her breasts, stomach, face and limbs. Its called “Beautiful dreams” and as you look at it, you think its of a woman lying sleeping. Until you find her right hand. And then you smile as you realise what she’s doing! LOL

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.

    Another lovely drawing Jackie!

    It really does go to show just how much thought your have to put into the way you pose your models, and even when you think you have it sorted out you are still looking for something better.

  7. EROTIC ART - PREHISTORY
    Aug 23, 2009

    PREHISTORIC – EROTIC ART: – http://www.arterupestre-c.com As we can see through different images, they had sexual intercourse with animals, homosexual relations and more than two people at the same time. http://www.arterupestre-c.com/1000.htm Venus – Venuses http://www.arterupestre-c.com/1000ven.htm There is o ne sculpture that is emblematic, found in 1908, after lots of research and different epochs being affirmed as the real o nes about this sculpture, now they believe it was done around 24,000-22,000 BC. It shows a woman with a large stomach that overhangs but does not hide her pubic area. A roll of fat extends around her middle, joining with large but rather flat buttocks, there's no face and seems that at this place there is a hat or even hair rolled up o n the head. Her genital area would appear to have been deliberately emphasized with the labia of the vulva carefully detailed and made clearly visible, perhaps unnaturally so, and as if she had no pubic hair. This, combined with her large breasts and the roundness of her stomach, suggests that the "subject" of the sculpture is female procreativity and nurture and the piece has long been identified as some sort of fertility idol. The fact that numerous examples like that of a female figure. All generally exhibiting the same essential characteristics – large stomachs and breasts, featureless faces, minuscule or missing feet – have been found over a broad geographical area ranging from France to Siberia. That suggests that some system of shared understanding and perception of a particular type of woman existed during the Paleolithic.

    That's really lovely.

    Ruf and I were talking about you recently during a discussion about art. A friend has a sort of abstract piece composed by another friend as the main focus of his dining room. It uses nice colours and shapes and is pleasant to look at but, somehow, I dont consider it 'art' in the same way as I view one of your pieces which allow me to see something real that I might not otherwise have seen. I guess it's a discussion that has been had many times before in the light of the work of Tracey Emin and the bloke with the animals in formaldehyde.

    As what I suppose is a 'still life' artist, how do you feel about these other types of 'art'?

    Erotic art prehistroy – Glad to know that erotic art isn't a new concept.

    Joanna – Thankyou for letting me know you were discussing art and me recently, that's good to hear!!! πŸ™‚

    And I'm even more delighted that you find my art to be something that shows you something that you may not have seen before, that is (in part) what I aim for!

    As for "the bloke with the animals in formaldehyde" – its interesting that you can't remember his name, but you can remember what he did, that says a lot!!!! LOL That sort of art is what I think of as "Emperors new clothes art" – in that it HAS TO BE EXPLAINED before you "get it". On its own you just look at it and wonder what the fuck it is. I believe that art can be viewed on its own and be thought of as appealing (or at least invoke an emotion, even if its a negative one) and although it will still need some more explanation for you to understand it better, it is attractive and life enhancing in its own right (unlike dead animals in formaldehyde!).
