Queyntes 18 and 19 seeing double

Well following on from my last blog post – it seems I’ve got a great success with the “Hot stuff” painting – and the person it is directly aimed at has fallen in love with it……… for all the right reasons! So I’m a very happy bunny! YAY!!!!

And so on to other things – another Fantasy Fanny to be exact. And I thought I’d try to do the painting just with shades of reds. It seemed a good idea when I started and I was confident that the painting would look good. But then it struck me that it might not be such a good idea after all. For………………, oh, very obvious reasons!!!! So, I looked hard at what I had painted so far and decided that turquoise and yellows would brighten it and enhance the painting considerably, and that’s what I aimed at, and think they do, vastly! I love the colours in this one, and the turquoise adds greatly to the image, to me. But then I’m a big fan of turquoise! So, Queynte 18 it is! Ah, but, there’s more to tell. Because I liked the shapes and the tones, and thought I’d try and do it again, but this time with muted colours on a block canvas to see how that went – and I’m delighted with that effect too! You can see its still the same image, but its more “decorative” in its abstraction – a sort of “abstract” abstract in a way! Which was an interesting concept to explore. So that’s Queynte 19. Instead of naming it “Queynte 18 muted” which it technically is, I thought it should have its own title!

And I had some interesting feedback re the Fantasy Fannies today – telling me that it was a mistake to put the little woman logo within the picture because then it was obvious what the image was. If I left it out it would be more abstract, and considered more appealing too and I might sell more pictures. I disagree. I think she needs to be there to make the point, even if I lose sales because of it. But I’m interested to hear what you think………………..

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.

    That's a very interesting question. As we're used to seeing the 'woman' symbol, it's a welcome sign. I say leave it in.. that's my vote. I really like the colour 'abstract' abstract painting but I'm not overly sure about the one below it, it doesn't jump out and grab me as much as the colour one.

    Indigo – Ok, thanks for your vote for keeping her – I'm of the opinion that I've put her in them all so far, and I'll continue with any future ones – having said that, if someone wanted one of the images without the woman logo, I could repaint the whole picture accordingly.

    The muted version is more of a "decorative" image, I think, in that it would easily fit into any room with a modern colour scheme, but the colour one "says" more and is more appealing in my opinion, and is more of a statement.

    By all means, keep the 'woman' symbol in there!
    I've come to adore seeing them so cleverly woven into the beauty of each Queyntes.

    I too prefer the more colorful painting.
    But then, thatis more my taste than anything else.

    You really do such beautiful work Jackie.

    Blazng Scarlet – That's a very positive affirmation for keeping the woman logo, thankyou!

    Yes, the brightly coloured one is more lovely isn't it, I like it a lot too.

    And, thankyou, I'm so pleased you like my work.

    LOL, as you know, I was quite specific about my own colour scheme and I loved what you did with it. Differing palettes is what helps to make each queynte even more individual. As to the little woman, it just wouldn't be the same without her!

    Joanna – Yes, the differing palettes certainly add that more individual touch to a very individual portrait!

    And, I agree, it wouldn't be the same without the little woman there….an important reminder of a very special image.
