Scarlet woman

After various conversations this week regarding stockings and suspenders, I thought it might be a nice idea to do an erotic drawing of some! I'm half happy with the image.... for me it needs more dramatic darks in it to give the lost and found edges that I love in a drawing, which make the image settle more into the background. But this was just an exercise in an erotic drawing more than anything else. I did it with a water soluble black pen and neocolor water soluble wax pastels, which entailed putting the pen and pastels dry onto the paper, then using clear water brushed over them to mix the colours and add shading where necessary. I think I might to it again at some point, perhaps in dry pastel on black paper, creating the mid-tones and high- lights or maybe even on scarlet paper putting in the darks and lights with conte pencil. I've called the drawing "dressed to thrill" and its up to the viewer to decide whether she's dressing in anticipation of going out to meet a lover, or undressing in front of the lover......

Hi Jackie, I love the intensity of the drawing.. hidden passions rising. Ready to meet the lover be it male or female, my thoughts would be female,of course!! Very raunchy ..very sexy.Keep them coming ..

This is a lovely start, Jackie! I like the blushing red background, as if the model is stepping out of whatever feelings of shame or guilt she may have to embrace her sexuality. For me she is getting prepared for sex, both in her dress and in her mind. If I could see her facial expression, it would be a mix of concentration, anticipation and fear . . . fear of rejection, fear that her new lover may not be what she desires, fear that he/she may not perform . . . the sort of thing we all go through during a first time.

If she was my lover, I'd be undressing her!

Indigo - glad you like my art and want some more. I know you appreciate sexy women and like em raunchy!

Jackie Adshead said...

Cherrie - that's why I rarely paint facial expressions for my erotic drawings. You have made your own decisions on the emotions the model is going through, and yet someone else might consider a totally different set of emotions based on my image.

Hornymale - I'm sure you would! In that case, for you, she's getting ready to meet you..... so you can undress her, at your pleasure, later on!
