Male model with an intriguing request

Male model with an intriguing request

I had a phone call this week from a guy who had contacted me earlier on this year, wanting me to consider him for a male model when I do life drawing. I politely informed him at the time that I’d add him to the list. I think by April I’d had five different guys making exactly the same offer from various places around the country…..

But when he rang me for a chat this week, it was following on from a brief email he’d sent the day before. One that had made me smile.

Because what he had suggested was something that I totally related to.

He’d said that he was a guy who did life modelling, and his girlfriend felt that the drawings that had been done of him during the life drawing sessions, were, well, a  bit too tame. And she wanted a drawing of him in a more erotic pose. Which is why he’d rung me!

I smiled when I heard that, as he, without knowing it, was talking about the same reason I’d got into erotic art in the first place. I’d felt that the life drawings I did 12 years ago when I went to life drawing sessions were a little boring, and wanted to make them look more interesting.

 As we chatted, he mentioOpening gambit (2)ned the name of a woman artist I know of, who he works with. And we talked about poses, and the more erotic pose he probably wants, although he’ll chat to his girlfriend to make sure they find a pose they both like, she to look at, and him to hold.

And then I can do the drawing for him.

I found him very easy to chat to, but then, we have this wonderful subject in common, and the shared experience of life drawings as artist and model.

 

Here’s one of my latter drawings, of another guy, as an illustration of one of my white on black erotic drawings, its called “Opening gambit” and although its a life drawing pose, its hinting at what’s on offer, by the enigmatic look on the man’s face, and the way the shadow of his right hand is pointing down towards.

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.
