Queynte 17

After the success of Nitebyrds rainbow Queynte, I thought I’d go straight onto the next one but try something a little bit different this time with the colours. And keep them to as few tones as possible within the basic colour scheme. The original idea was to try it with three tones – cream, pale gold and mid gold. But I quite quickly found that it needed more depth unless it was to look completely abstract, so had to add some deeper darks and the brighter yellow to add extra interest. I also had to incorporate more texture in the painting, but I certainly think it works as a concept and the Queynte is as interesting as the more brighter coloured ones. I also think it might work well as a black and white image which might be a good idea for another one at a later date….
I’ve spent the weekend at art exhibitions that I’ve exhibited at. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and loved seeing my artist friends, loved seeing their artwork and was pleased with the standard of my paintings against the others there. But I didn’t sell any. Its sometimes the way it is. Its frustrating. Its a shame, and a pity. I’ve put a lot of hard work into creating the artwork, into taking it to be hung, in the hope that someone might want to buy it. But they haven’t. So, the paintings are returned to the cupboard. Until the next time. On the off chance that someone might want to actually buy them. One day.
And this is the reason that I much prefer commissions. Tell me what you want me to paint, and we’ll discuss it. We’ll agree a price, and I’ll paint it for you. You’ll be happy because you’ll get exactly what you want, and I’ll be happy because I’ll be selling paintings!
So, does anyone want their Queynte (Fantasy Fanny) painted? 🙂 In the single colour style seen here, or a brightly coloured one? If you do………………..let me know……………

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.

    'My my' Jackie what little gem do we have here? I think the colour scheme goes fantasically well, again, with the colourful ones I think they're just awesome, but I have to admit I do LIKE this particular cooler colour, yes, I think it's a winner..

    Inspired! Jackie, it reminds me of the desert, where undulating dunes have been carved by wind! It's as beautiful as the vibrantly colored ones but totally unique.

    Bravo!

    Nitebyrd – Thankyou, I'm glad you like it. I love the fact they are totally unique, even with a muted colour scheme. I bet it would look good as just being reds, or even blues, as well!

    I think this looks amazing Jackie and whilst I love the bright, bold and vivid colours of the other Queynte's, it just goes to show they are not needed to still leave you with an incredible painting!

    Fitzy – That's right, they don't have to be bright and vivid colours to make a good painting, I'm glad you agree!
