Don’t try to ignore it

Don’t try to ignore it

I knew something was missing last week when I was working on the erotic couple painting but carried on regardless (isn’t that a Carry On film…….?) and yes, my gut reaction was right, there was something missing. Not in the painting, in the making of it but then that in turn made the painting. But I carried on, thinking I could overcome it, and lo and behold after a couple of hours stood back and realised that trying to ignore something that I needed wasn’t going to improve it at all.  Ok…. lets do it then.

A quick flick of a switch, and I scanned the screen, searching for what I needed.

Ah yes…….

There they are, the little beauties……..

Come to me and work your magic….

Sex Machine – Friday night……Jennifer Lopez – On the floor…..Swedish House Mafia – Greyhound……. Madonna – Celebration….. Ram Jam – Black Betty……..

Yep that’s done it. Loud and clear…..

Picking my brush up, and moving with the rhythm, letting the music take me, letting it envelop me, the brush  moving in time to the fast beat, the thumping rhythm, the beating drums.

And at the end of the session, when the light is fading, I stand back from the picture, and say outloud “Wow!”

Thats done it, thats put the life in it!

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.
