Grateful thanks from someone who knows

Grateful thanks from someone who knows

I was delighted to have a message over the weekend from the woman who was given the painting I did of ‘Wooster’ a few weeks ago by the client of mine who had commissioned it as a gift for her, but hadn’t told her he was doing it until he gave her the finished painting.

She thanked me for putting so much work into the painting and capturing this lovely dog who has been such a special beloved pet in her life. I thanked her and knew she knew this dog far better than any one, and I had never met him, I only had two photos to work from…he wasn’t even in this setting in the photo, but I painted it so that it would look naturally that he was…

So I know I’ve done by job right, if she was so touched by my painting of him. I’d got it right, and that makes me proud!

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.
