Lucy inn the sky with delight

I caught up with my old mate Lucy Felthouse last week for a much awaited catch up chat after a short flurry of arranging and changing  dates to suit each others busy timetables. We didn’t manage to see each other at all last year with one thing and another, so it was good to see her for a  social drink and hear what she’s been up to.  It always amuses me when she as an erotic writer, and me as an erotic artist, meet in a public place – a pub local to her area this time for a drink, because although we are both professional in our work, the fact that the people at the next table are hearing comments like “So he told me all his sexual secrets so that I could write his erotic story for him to give to his girlfriend” and “Well, I told him that if he can hold that pose for four hours I’d draw him naked with a hard on and playing with himself” amuses us both to a large degree! 🙂

 A great night, and great fun, as always, and much enjoyed, as far as the erotic artist is concerned!

And my next blog post?

Well, it will be the unveiling of a very special painting……..

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.
