Half a golden fanny

Half a golden fanny

Having finished the first of the two fantasy fanny logo designs for the client, and being very happy with the way it has progressed and become something that I find both enigmatic, and visually powerful, I have now turned my attentions to the more popular one as far as I am concerned… the golden one.

I didn’t want to do the golden one first, since I knew that it would be more tricky in some ways. Because technically, it was just one colour…. gold. Well, gold on a gold and (other colour that I don’t want to talk about yet until it is fully ready to be shown to the world) striped background. And the point of gold on gold would be that it wouldn’t show up enough. So, although I am more than happy with the gold acrylic paint I am using, I realised I had to put some slight variations of colour within the gold to give it some different textures and tones.

After a bit of experimentation …..

I found that if I used a few small amounts of non metallic colour I could improve on the gold by making it more….. well…golden by using cadmium yellow, or make it more reddish with a touch of red, or darker with raw sienna, or a deeper black gold effect with black paint. All very subtle, and all very delicate, but it worked! Acrylic paints

Yay!

I love it when an experimentation in colour works. It feeds the artists creativity! And a happy artist makes happy art!

I’ve informed the client today that I have almost finished the second one, and how much better the two new paintings are compared to the working paintings I did a fortnight ago. I can’t wait to show her….. to see her reactions…..

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.
