Eroticising a landscape three ways

Eroticising a landscape three ways

There are three ways of creating an erotic landscape..

The first is to hide an erotic couple within what looks like an ordinary landscape.. like I did in my painting “Towering passions” for a client from Windsor, in that it depicted the night-time skyline of New York, with the lights shining out from the sky scrapers, and reflecting on the river.. but for those who know where to look there is a naked couple having sex hidden within the lights…

Towering Passions

The second kind, and by far the most difficult, is when the geography of the land is actually the erotic couple. It’s far more difficult to make a hand look like a tree, or a hillock to become a breast, or a lighthouse to take on a whole new meaning.. and that is what I did in my painting “Tree of life” for a woman in Dorset, where the landscape looks like Lands End, with the man being the cliff, and the woman below him made of the dunes for breasts, the dune grass her nipples, the tree as her hand, the cave the gap undtree of life2er her knee, the sandy outcrop her head, a rock her open mouth, and the froth from the sea her hair fanning out.



And last week I finally finished off the third kind, which is I suppose is the most traditional version.. where the erotic couple are part of part of the landscape… a tree in this instance. The painting was done from photos I took of a local stream with trees above and all around it. I have added a little artistic licence to it in that I have depicted a more interesting scene than the photos actually showed.. but I wanted the erotic couple to be quite obvious within the painting… as if nature had created them, and any one could see them within the tree if they looked quickly enough at the entwined trunk. I am delighted at the result of it, and the title seemed a very obvious one too.. with all the greenery within the scene…. I have called it “Green energy”.

Green energy



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.
