Come and tell me how I can put a smile on your face

Come and tell me how I can put a smile on your face

Whilst working on my latest white on black (with some sexy red highlights) erotic drawing this week, like the one pictured here, but its not this one I’ve been working on, I started smiling the minute I put white conte pencil on the black card. I’ve done so many of these over the years and still always find them so enjoyable, partly because its pulling an image out of the blackness, and knowing that that image will be strongly powerful because  its not all there – not all there in a hidden in the darkness way, not as in a sandwich short of a picnic sort of way. You know what I mean.

And as the picture evolved with the creamy white pencil softly forming the lines then building up the soft skin tones it gets even better. The frame I’ve put it in accentuates the black detail too and finishes it off, as it should. I can’t show it to you yet, since its a surprise for someone’s special Christmas present, and although they may or may not read this blog, I won’t chance it. It’ll spoil the surprise and we don’t want that do we…… ?

I was telling my students about it at my teaching class this week, and have promised them that we’ll try the technique next week, which should be interesting for them. I say that in a *I totally understand this method because I developed it about eleven years ago and have been practicising it regularly since then* sort of way, knowing that some of them struggle to draw lines that they CAN see on figures, and I’m going to ask them to draw the ones that they won’t see at the end, but they’re keen and fascinated by the process and so far I’ve got every point across on everything they’ve tackled. But, any sort of art is getting your head around strange concepts that may not make sense before you start learning it, but when you see the fabulous effects you get the message that’s in it.

 

But other than that, this weeks big news is the fact that I’ve updated my website this week , yay,  so go and take a look and see the new artwork, the new write-ups, and have a think about how my artwork can enhance your Christmas…….. as I know it can…..do you want to commission me to do a wonderful piece of special art for a loved one to make them smile? Do you want to buy something that I’ve got for sale in my shop? Do you want to buy a Limited Edition print? Or a print of one of the erotic drawings in my galleries? Just remember that most things are possible, and just asking cost’s nothing, and I may be able to do something wonderful for you, as the people I’ve already done artwork for in the past will attest – I’ve touched emotional levels in them through the artwork they’ve asked me to do, and I can do the same for you……….

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.
