All shiny like a jewellers shop window

All shiny like a jewellers shop window

I’m getting very close to finishing the acrylic painting of the erotic couple, just pulling the final stages together putting in the tiny details that make the painting more visually appealing. Today I’m blending in the highlights on the skin and making the shapes of the body forms more pronounced. When that’s done I can finally put the jewellery in, and there’s quite a lot of that – a shiny watch, two rings, a pretty dangling belly bar and an almost partly hidden nipple ring. I quite like painting nipple bars as they contrast with the skin they are inserted in and catch the light with bright flashes of white. And then the decision as to what the background will be. At the moment there is a simple bluely purply background erotic coupleapplied just as a contrast to the skin tones. If I’d left the background white then I wouldn’t have got the skin tones to the right depth of colour, because skin is actually quite dark in the shadows. Painting a blue background immediately gives contrast to the flesh tones of the skin, and allows the colours to be better blended when the background is put in around the couple but not that they look like they’re superimposed on it, but actually IN the painting with soft lost and found edges. It will only be a simple background, its not like they will be in a room, or a landscape, but there will still have to be darks in some places and lights in others to add interest and appeal. Its looking good so far and I can’t wait to see it finished!

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.
