Going into partnership with New Look

Going into partnership with New Look

Hunters moon insitu 3

I knew last week that my painting would be hung over New Look in Ashby-de-la-Zouch for the month of the arts festival and that they were going up in the town last Sunday, so when Monday morning came I was straight in my car to go and view it.

 

 

And with a big cheesy grin saw it hanging there. You’d think I’d never seen my paintings hanging for the world to see, which of course I have, many times, its just this is a new experience, seeing such a large painting in such a prominent place. I couldn’t have picked a better spot for it, being on the main Market Street, and near where one of the important secondary roads joins it. So I’m a happy bunny! Hunters moon insitu 2

 

 

Happy that the image that I created could be viewed easily from yards away across the road, and that the tones were clear enough to tell the tale of the picture. It works! YAY!!!

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.
