What wonderful feedback

What wonderful feedback

On return from my holiday in France I had a wonderful email that put a big smile on my face. It was from the guy I did the pencil life drawing of a few weeks ago… who had showed the drawing to his wife and this was his feedback of her reaction….

.”… She thinks it’s brilliant and that you have captured me perfectly.  At first she didn’t believe I actually stood naked in front of you and I must have sent a photo, until I showed her the photo of me next to the drawing.  Anyway as I said she loves it.

I enjoyed reading your blog, and the way you explained how we achieved the final portrait and I hope you enjoyed refreshing your skills as an erotic artist.  I will add that it was a strange feeling seeing myself on there even with my face blocked.

I replied that I was delighted that his wife loved the picture, and thought it that I had captured him perfectly. Its always a lot of pressure on an artist to not only draw the person, but to capture their essence, and character within a portrait, with only a few hours to do so. I’ was glad I took the photo of him by the drawing to prove the point that he had actually posed in real life for me.

If the client is happy, then the artist is happy too…

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.
