Newly added for the new year

Newly added for the new year

I was hoping to update my website just before Christmas but with one thing and another – sprained ankle, running out of time, and the pressure of catching up with December deadlines, it was decided to leave it until the new year.

So, this  first shiny new week of the new year the updates were…. updated… Cherry blossom gazebo kissTwelve paintings and drawings done last year have gone into the galleries…

Five in the Landscape Gallery including the evocative “Home is where the heart is” and the seascape with sand and shell in textured acrylics “Let me take one last look” the vibrant and happily simplistic “Morning Glory”, the uplifting “Refreshing the spirit” and the colourful “The way through the woods”…..

Home is where the heart isOne in the Animals Gallery .. being a bright watercolour of “Unicorn 2” that I painted just before Christmas as a commission.

Three in the People Gallery, being the enigmatic masked “Man of Mystery” in oils, one of my favourites as I love sunlight and turquoise water “Mike in Eureka swimming pool in Acrylics”  and the bride and groom wedding painting of “Cherry blossom gazebo kiss” in delicate watercolours.

And lastly, but certainly no means least, three drawings to go in the Erotic Gallery .. “Keith in a mask” done in black conte pencil on cream pastel paper,  and “Cuddle” and “Caress” done in white conte pencil on black card, all three effective for the soft drawing technique commissions that I did for the clients. Man of mystery

All of these are sold and hanging on walls all over the countryLet me take one last look, except for the landscapes…

 

Caress

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.
