Delighted to be asked to do the updates

I had a chat a couple of weeks ago with my neighbour who mentioned he wanted me to do some artwork for him. He invited me to call around his house last weekend for him to show me what he was talking about. I was intrigued what he was referring to, but when he showed me the four drawings and said he wanted them to be updated I could see what he meant..what a lovely idea and agreed that I could do what he was asking..

About 15 years ago he and his wife and two daughters were on holiday in Paris and saw a street artist so they all sat and had their portaits drawn in Conte pencil on coloured paper, and they were all framed and on the wall in their lounge. But he wanted them updated, and four more drawings done, from photos that one of his daughters who is a photographer, will take.

What a lovely idea, and yes I can do it for him. How lovely!

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.
