Who will be next with a big smile on their face I’m wondering

Who will be next with a big smile on their face I’m wondering

For the last eight months since last June the artwork jobs have flowed in on a nice steady stream, from one to the next which is how I like it. Giving me time to focus on one job fully before the next one carried me on with its creative momentum. I’ve drawn pen and ink drawings of Repton and Milton for Repton Parish Council, brightly coloured Fantasy Fanny logos for a Leicestershire business woman, a black and white acrylic painting of a happy couple in a beach setting, two pencil drawings for Local historian and writer Stuart Haywood both at his current age of 80 and a retrospective one of him aged 40 which he was delighted with, and then the Angel with red hair and pagan symbols painting on canvas for a very happy and delighted couple in the South East. And at the time of completing it just before Christmas I wondered what painting would be next…

Since then there have been three enquiries…..

One for erotic life drawing of a couple in a variety of poses

One for a naked drawing for a couple in a beach setting

And one of a portrait of a couple, clothed.

I’ve had conversations, regarding ideas and prices and logistics not nothing firmly arranged and booked in yet.

I appreciate its only the second week of January and not even half way through the month, so three conversations is actually quite good….

And its the normal way of things that the minute I get one booked in, I’ll get four more wanting work done!  I’m used to that, that’s the way it normally goes when you’re self employed and an artist.

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.
