Easter thoughts carried through

Easter thoughts carried through

Knowing it was the long Easter weekend coming up and that I was having a nice break away with friends I wanted to get on with my latest painting as much as I could last week to keep the strong momentum going for this week when I was home again. When I have an idea for a painting the ideas form in my head and each day a few more will arise, maybe even when I am first waking up, or going to sleep, sitting having a cup of tea or doing something totally unconnected to art. My brain is mulling over ideas and will suggest something to me. I’m always happy when that happens as it means that the ideas are good ones! So, getting as many ideas as I could down on the canvas as the basis for the working painting was a good one, and meant that I would be steps ahead this week when I could pick up painting again.

But it seems the ideas didn’t want a break whilst I was away. On quiet moments I still picked up my sketch book and jotted down ideas and colour themes to see if they worked…..

And they did…!

Tomorrow all being well I shall start and put them on canvas…. 🙂

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.
