Still riding the uplift

Still riding the uplift

Well thankyou to those people who chose to email me directly this week to tell me what they thought about the “Peter and Miranda, past, present and future” painting. I’ll share some of the responses below…..

 

Well I wasn’t sure at first but kept looking and I ended up liking it. It is a very strong picture and I hope they like it .

What a masterpiece!  I am very impressed with all the preparation, research and work that went into it, and I was fascinated by the slow development of the painting, layer by layer, subduing the bright colours with the dark, which gives the final work such depth.  And the expressions on the couple (and their cat) are perfect.

It’s a lovely painting Jackie

 A remarkable story..and a beautiful painting…the night time atmosphere is haunting. Would love to see the original

What can I say!  SUPER!!!!!!  Well Done.

… it seemed you were given loads of challenges to achieve. Reading your blog, which I found very informative explains beautifully the different steps and challenges and how you over came them. I enjoyed the piece and I am positive the piece was well received.

Just read your blog re the Peter & Miranda painting–what a very interesting painting & background to it all. It  looks mysterious , slightly ethereal in fact & you ‘ve put such a lot of thought into it to get it just right! Well done!

Having just read and enjoyed your story of Peter and Miranda, I wanted to share my thoughts with you!As a ‘non-artist’ I have no skills to form an objective opinion on your artistry, I do however know what appeals to me even though I’m sometimes unsure as to why!! Some things just reach into your soul and touch you.In this instance I was more interested in the story surrounding the end product. You drew me into your thoughts, observations and ideas so that when I studied the finished picture, it felt familiar, complete and full of love.Well done Jackie – it’s beautiful and you must be so proud.

I loved this depiction as soon as I saw it,even before I knew what it is depicting.The eerie look of the churchyard in moonlight is wonderful emphasised as it is by the lighted candle.You were wise to omit the owl and skull and crossbones as I think that they would have made that part of the painting to “busy”.It is better being a bit “spare”.  The bride looks lovely in her medieval gown which is somehow enhanced by the brilliant cat.Together the bride and groom make a handsome couple. I like the juxtaposition of the moon,cat and candle which forms a symbolic Trinity of one Godhead ,appropriate for wedding.  All concerned with this work should be very proud of the part they played in it’s conception.

Most unusual commission but it is very personal to the people concerned. I hope it becomes a family heirloom.

***Peter and Miranda, past, present and future (2)

I really like Peter and Miranda, past present and Future. I can see that there has been a lot of thought and work gone into it.The composition is excellent and I am sure Peter and Miranda will treasure their present.

 Love it. The idea of all the pieces coming together. Do they live in a gothic mansion or something, as i could imagine it going well on the wall! The red dress is better than a white one would be. I like that it’s in the night time, that’s so different.

Hi Jackie, it’s a great painting. At first I thought it was a bit morbid as a wedding present, but the more I looked at it and read your blog the more I saw that it is actually very loving and sensual.You’ve captured their love for each other and the period dress really well. Look forward to seeing more…

 Awwww…. thankyou all so much, its been lovely to hear such kind positive responses to it!!  I’ve put so many hours into this painting for Peter and Miranda and its good to finally share my thoughts and the work behind it so to have this response to it makes it all very worthwhile. Its been under wraps for so long, and now it can be shown.

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.
