Another exciting painting on the go

Another exciting painting on the go

A week ago it was summer, this week its winter. A shock to the system as the greyness of the soddenly wet day lashes against the window.

But, even if its dark at 4pm, how did that happen? And even though a day after 5th November and Bonfire Night it officially became Christmas in Tesco (don’t they just love it!) I am pre-occupied.

But its the comfort of knowing that  the big idea for a new painting last week hasn’t changed in a week of looking at the angles all the way around it. I cannot improve on the concept and idea so I shall do it. It ticks the boxes I want ticking, it is exciting but harmonious, it is instantly recognisable and appealing. It has atmosphere….. and action. It is something I will enjoy painting, and the style is something I love doing very much. This way of painting has a harmonious magic to it. But I need to control it, and show that it is controlled. I am wondering about whether to paint a working painting, or just go straight for the mainpainting. Having said that, I know exactly what I want to do, I’ve planned the main colours, and the tones, drawn out the intricate shapes and worked out how they interact with each other. And I know that I can’t wait to get going on it, the momentum is in me……  and I have the blank canvas ready, willing, and aching to be covered in paint…………….

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.
