The third realm painting to accompany the others

The third realm painting to accompany the others

When I finished the last realm painting it was suggested to me that there should be a third one, to accompany the other two, so that the three of them could be hung together. Not a small request at all to achieve!

I had a think about it and decided that for me the best way to pull the other two together was to imagine the moment when the fire and water realm first started, the matter of creation between the two.

So, here is the painting that I created of that moment in time, the separate water and the separate fire and three creatures just starting to form…the tadpole type creature on the left hand side, and the duck type creature bursting up, and the dark eye of the creature forming from the red fire in the middle of the picture. I wanted the painting to have the same palette of colours that the other two realm paintings have – black, white, turquoise, cadmium red, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, as they would be more harmonious then as three paintings. The painting is like the others, in acrylics on block canvas, this one measures 31.5 x 24 inches, and is called ‘Birth of the realm of fire and water’. I love it! I loved painting it, and I love the way it matches the other two. Which I’ve shown below….

Here’s the one I painted a couple of weeks ago.. ‘Underwater realm of the fire vicuna’

And here’s the painting I finished before that, a few months ago… ‘Realm of the fire bellied water baboon’

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.
