Flurries and fantasticals

Queynte 2 (2)Its Wednesday and so far I haven’t been able to do what I planned for Monday. This is Monday of this week, not next. But in the meantime I have been as usual busy with half a dozen other things……. the art board that I thought I’d finished last week and signed in an exciteable moment of finished-ness meant that I was gently informed that its in the stipulations that the boards can’t have any signatures and since I presumed I was doing the same as everyone else, meant that yesterday I had to return and paint over the bit where my signature was and of course, of all the paintpots that I bought and used up, the one colour I wanted was the one colour that I hadn’t got any more of….no matter, I will create a similar colour with three other colours – harvest moon plus velvet plus antique rose equal lavender (well nearly) and five minutes later, job done. Today I have returned to waterproof it since it will be hanging outside for a month and one thing you can guarantee in this glorious country is that it will rain during that time so it needs waterproofing. I have learnt something new this week, and that is that PVA glue is not only the carpenters friend, it is also the artists friend, well I knew that actually I’ve used it enough times for collage and mixed media, but what I didn’t know was that you can mix PVA glue and water in a 50/50 mix to waterproof artboards. The backside coat (not mine, the boards) was done today and hopefully the front end (the board, not mine) will be done before the week is through. I can’t wait to see it hanging in the town!

Added to that I am in conveQueynte 4 (2)rsation  this week with someone who wants a couple of tasteful  erotic drawings done of his wife. And also in conversation with a guy who wants an erotic life drawing done of himself. And also had a wonderfully long conversation with a woman in her 40’s who has been wanting a special painting done for a few months now based on an image that has touched her heart and soul, and it dawned on the two of us at the same time, that she and I were put into each others lives for that very reason. She has been looking for someone to paint this exciting picture for her, and that is what I specialise in, creating special paintings for people. So after our long chat this week I am waiting for her to send me the image that excites her so much for me to be able to chat further with her about it.

But……………. the painting that I am itching to get started on since last Monday is even more special than that. Its a new one to add to my favourite collection of my paintings. Another “Fantasy Fanny” to paint in vibrant and exciting colour, another female portrait but not of a face, another Queynte! And this one is a limited colour scheme, but very flamboyant in its colouring, and since the base colour is made of two primary colours it gives me a lot of lee way regarding colouring and tones. I love doing these paintings and its ages since I last did one. They are the ultimate portrait as far as I am concerned, the ultimate conversation piece to hang on the wall, and here are two that I did some time ago to remind you how fabulous they are……..

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.
