Delighted to do a new favourite a second time

Delighted to do a new favourite a second time

I was asked recently to sell my ‘Tree goddess’ painting, that I finished in March this year, and told the client that delighted as I was to hear that he wanted to buy it, it wasn’t for sale, as I had painted it for myself…but I was more than happy to sell him a print of it. He said he didn’t want a print, he wanted an original of it, so we agreed that I would paint it again as a commission.

That meant that the client could choose what size it would be, and whether it was to be framed or not. I suggested a dark wood frame and dark green mount that I thought would be ideal for it, and the client happily I’ve started painting it a second time, again in acrylics on paper, and a bit smaller than the first one – this one is 15.5 x 11.5 inches, but still large enough for me to get the fine details in it, and in some ways easier than the original as all I need to do is copy it,

Having said that, it took a couple of hours to draw it out, and there are many many hours of work in it to create all the details of the Tree goddess -I am loving painting it again, and also delighted that she is going to hang on someone elses wall to make them happy too!

This is the original painting, and when I’ve finished the latest one, I’ll show you the comparrison….

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.
