Colours of France

Colours of France

I’m just back from a wonderful relaxing holiday in France, and am so enamoured with the colours of the holiday and their impact on me…

There’s the pale greeny turquoise of the sea on the cross channel ferry crossing… as the ferry arrives in Dieppe.

Theres the bright blue of the sky

Theres the white of the Millau bridge

Theres the soft blues of the Mediterranean sea and sky ….

Theres the bright yellow of the sunflower fields

And theres the red and white flowers that Dieppe is full of, because of the Canadian soldiers who died on the beaches there during the second World War in 1942. So poignant, that even now, so many years later the town has red and white flowers in memory of the Canadian flag, so even in peace, they are remembered

Colours of France, and all with their own message…

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.
