…and a fantasy portrait of one lucky winner (shown above).
By coincidence the winner of this turned out to be Mistress Tess, who just happened to have a drawing already commissioned – which you can see in this previous blog-post. Of course I could not do this during the evening of the Femdom Ball itself. Nor after a few drinks was I in any state to do so! – but a sketch was made and this served as a basis, as also something to take away as a prize.
It is always a great pleasure when my commissions bring two people closer and this portrait was intended as the ultimate gesture – a proposal of marriage from Joris to his wonderfully ebullient mistress Madame Caramel, who is the founder and organiser of the renowned Femdom Ball.
Originally the idea was simply to show the situation of Madame Caramel being presented with a card, regally seated on the throne in her dungeon – a very well-equipped premises, by the way – but then we came up with extending the idea by adding a message to this and covering it up with a paper flap for surprise.
Joris presented the portrait card to Madame Caramel during a special surprise holiday in May and she tells me that she was very happy with it and better still, unhesitatingly accepted the offer of marriage. I am so pleased that I was able to play a part in this happy event and wish the couple many years of happiness to come.
Much as I enjoy sitting at my work, escaping from the drawing-board once in a while is always a pleasure and Madame Caramel ‘s long-awaited Femdom Ball was a simply unmissable event . She had been preparing for this event for months and it was really one of the best-organised parties I’d ever attended. At a secret and very opulent location in Central London beautifully dressed mistresses gathered from all over the country to celebrate together with their male submissives/slaves. The rules were that while mistresses enjoyed themselves eating and drinking, the men were required to serve them in any capacity they pleased and were neither to eat nor to drink. As my own contribution I sketched three charming ladies from Mistress Ezada’s House of Sinn , coming all the way from Romania for the event.
Now, on-the-spot portraits are unplanned and a leap in the dark – you never know how they will turn out and can be disappointing if they don’t work out well. But it’s a “party trick” for me by now, having made quite a few at London femdom “Pedestal” club and generally they don’t often turn out too badly. They sometimes miss accuracy but I try to convey the character. In this case I had a little champagne to help things along -which I was not really allowed “as a male” but well – artists need a little encouragement 🙂
Pleased to say that all three were very happy with their portraits and I look forward to the next party when I hope to perform a similar function.
This portrait was a special gift commissioned by a slave to Mistress Couple (right) of La Domaine Esemar in the U.S. to celebrate the transfer of management from Master R (left). They stand in the gardens of the Domaine and he symbolically passes a ceremonial whip to her as she touches him in loving respect for the gift.
This is an unusual portrait as not only does it feature two main characters of equal stature, it is also one of the few artworks I’ve made of a dominant male. I paint portraits of dominant women in the main but I am also quite happy to consider commissions featuring dominant men and female submissives too.
Club RUB is one of the most long-established and respected fetish clubs in the U.K. Recently Kim, the founder of the parties, commissioned artwork for six club flyers to be used from July to December. These will be used to advertise their parties and take their subject matter generally from the theme of each party night..for instance -“Old School Night” in July or “Halloween” in October.
It’s not my usual style but it’s dramatic and suited to the fun-loving atmosphere which Kim creates so well for her club.
In the post of 24th February I wrote about a series of four drawings called “The Gag-shop” which featured four internationally renowned mistresses. In an unusual and wonderful development these same ladies – Mistress Ezada, Mistress Akella, Madame Catarina and Lady Victoria Valente had the original thought of producing a custom photo session, together with videos, to re-enact the series.
I admit, when I first heard about this, I thought that it was a nice idea but nothing would come of it. For a start, all four mistresses have extremely busy schedules and it would be difficult to synchronise all in one place at one time. But to my surprise, as time passed the project was planned with such care and attention to detail that a time and location in Germany was indeed confirmed, convenient for all mistresses, and a professional photographer hired for the occasion. I grew more enthralled as I saw photographs of the props being made and heard reports of what was happening – and flattered too that unwittingly I had brought four mistresses together in a collaborative effort which has since led to them becoming not only partners but great friends too.
But to the photos.
In No. 1 Mistress Akella is walking down the street with a ‘dog’ on her leash carrying her purchases on his back. In the background is the gag-shop.
As we move into No. 2 we see Mistress Ezada Sinn looking in through the window of the shop, perhaps deciding which gag the dog beside her will be buying.
In No. 3 we have moved inside the shop and see Madame Catarina inspecting the various gags in the shop. There are some really exotic varieties here. In the background another lady has just bought some gags and the sales-assistant is wrapping them up for her.
In No 4 we see that lady herself, Lady Victoria Valente looking menacingly at her own slave who has spilt her purchases all over the street. There will be consequences for him!In the background we glimpse Mistress Akella again which brings us satisfyingly round to the first frame again.
I was quite amazed at the result and hope you like them too. Please visit their sites for more information and photos:-
