I’ve found it!

I’ve found it!

I’ve found it! The thing I’ve been looking for for the last three weeks. After a long search digging deep inside myself I have found it!

The problem was finding the thing that I want to paint, the thing that will inspire me, and others too.

My Unique Selling Point.

Because I didn’t want it to be the same as anyone elses, well, we have the *Unique* aspect to consider. And my huge problem was that I paint sooooooooooo many fabulously diverse things, and lots of them are very similar subjects to other artists. And I wanted MY subject, not theirs.  Hence the long deep thinking, the soul searching, the intense note making, the hard considerations and big analysis of my vast inner knowledge. I have looked down so many different pathways considering possibilities, but come back to this one every time, its the right oneAcrylic paints for me, and I think others will see why when they see it.

Now I’ve found it, I can paint! And have started painting the first one. But, and this is the point, I can easily find variations within that subject matter that will still always inspire me but give me variations within the subject matter to give them their own personality. And their personality is English, and that’s important too, since that is what I am.

Paint is going on canvas, and it’s looking good! 🙂

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.
