The plan has been put on hold

The plan has been put on hold

When I first finished the black and white pen and ink drawings for Repton Parish Council, I knew I’d have to wait a bit before talking more about them due to holidays (both mine and the contact I had with the Parish Council). In the meantime since I had a bit of free time, and the weather was good I decided to start decorating outside paintwork on my house. That, as it is wont to do, grew into a far bigger job than I had first envisaged… !

But know its done, and I’ve caught up on the decorating that the last two wet summers have curtailed me doing.

So next week I intend talking in more depth about the pen and ink illustrations I’ve completed recently for Repton Parish Council, for their Neighbourhood Development Plan,  plus some others that I have done for them in the past. They make a lovely set of drawings I think, although obviously some will have more appeal than others. All illustrations Repton and Milton

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.
