Celebrating my love of Kent

Celebrating my love of Kent

Since I moved to Kent (almost 3 years ago!) I knew I wanted to do more artwork of this beautiful picturesque county. So last week when I had a spare day I thought I’d make the most of it and do another pen and ink drawing of one of the most picturesque places… one that had been on my to do list for a long time….

Kent has more castles than any other county in England, and most of them are beautiful to look at – as far as I am concerned as an artist with an eye for beauty….

But there is one castle which stands out more than any other for an artist to want to draw and its this one..

Leeds Castle (which just to confuse everyone, is NOT in Leeds, or even anywhere near Yorkshire!) is described as ‘the loveliest castle in England’ and I can see why – but then I always love to see old stones and water together and Leeds Castle certainly has that in abundance!

So I really enjoyed doing this one..

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.
