Exciting new commission in triplicate

Exciting new commission in triplicate

In these strange times I don’t expect new commissions to come in often, so I was delighted a few weeks ago when I was commissioned to do a new painting for a new client. She wanted not one, but three paintings done of herself to match other existing artwork she had on her bedroom wall.

I’ve started work on the paintings this week, drawing them out on their canvases and today I was ready to start painting, and it quickly dawned on me that I wasn’t going to paint these pictures one at a time as I had expected on doing, but the three of them together, all at the same time! The reason was simple.. they were all of the same woman, and would be in black, red, and flesh tones. But since they were to have the same black in them, and the same shade of red, and the same flesh tones, then it made sense to paint them to match each other.

It makes it slightly more difficult to paint them that way, but at least I know that they will totally match each other!

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.
