Recent sketches

The Sardax studio is as busy as ever, though as most commissions are currently private there have been few public updates. There are also some interesting pieces forthcoming – including a personal shrine (!) – but they cannot be revealed just yet.

But I like to get out and about and for various reasons meet up to sketch current mistresses who come in and around London. This might be in connection with an upcoming commission, or for one visiting from abroad and rarely here, or simply I find an interest in drawing them.

Unlike my fully commissioned work I do not make a charge for these – they are a pleasure to make – and once a photo has been taken the sketch is given away freely, but they are made entirely at my suggestion and I cannot accept requests to sketch.

Here are a few of the most recent.

Mistress Alexandra Wildfire 

Mistress Courtney Morgan

Mistress T

Princess Aurora 2

As she was so pleased with her portrait as Kinky Alice, Manchester based humiliatrix Princess Aurora hinted to one of her long-time admirers that she would like a similar drawing to go alongside it and this was the resulting piece.
She gave a very free brief, but only requested that the costume should feature a pleated skirt.

In this drawing Princess Aurora takes time to visit her dungeon, where some of her giant-sized prisoners of desire press forward against the solid steel bars for the chance to see her and delicately kiss her fingernails.

Portrait of Lady Salome

Lady Salome, a mistress from Germany, wished for a fantasy-based theme and taking her name as a starting-off point we thought of a head on a silver platter, though that seemed a little gruesome. A skull with tongue licking her feet seemed a better idea. She wears a rather fetishy medieval dress and carries a sword (perhaps of justice?) Behind her a traditional German castle and a small reference to the other Biblical Salome of a crucifix on the railings. In addition to the classic watercolour treatment a very thin layer of red ink was added to the hair and tongue of the skull.

Portrait of Mistress Michelle Lacy 2

The first portrait of South Florida and New York based Mistress Michelle Lacy was so well received that the commissioner, her favourite “pony pet”, planned a companion piece for Christmas, but this time including himself standing to her left.
As in the first, another mistress rides a buggy in the background at Mistress Michelle’s fantastic open-air play Order of Indomitus

A posthumous portrait

 

A few times in the course of my career I have been asked to make posthumous portraits. (for partners or mistresses who have unfortunately passed on)
While the portraits are not in themselves generally difficult, the circumstances surrounding the commission have to be handled sensitively as they can be affected by grief and emotion. An artwork commissioned at an emotional intensity one month can become problematic through onset of depression a few months later. Moreover the feelings of other close relatives have to be considered besides that of the partner – who is usually the commissioner.
One time on receiving his portrait the widower told me touchingly – “It was what she always wanted -but we never got round to it.”
Last year I was approached by S. who wanted to commemorate the relationship with his beloved mistress and partner- Mistress Mariska. He sent me photos of her and I tried my best to draw it as he -and perhaps she -might want it.

He has given his permission now to make this portrait public.

Portrait of Lady Fyre

This simple portrait of Lady Fyre was gifted as a Christmas present but the brief was from the Lady herself. It shows her reclining on a sofa, holding up a ribbon to play with her own cat, to which is attached a key.
The key to what? Your chastity?
Her enigmatic smile will not reveal.

The subtle use of red crayon on this emphasises Lady Fyre’s flaming red hair, her shoes and the ribbon. Red is unique among all the colours in adding a note of sensuality to a black and white pen drawing.

Portrait of Miss Laura 3

This is the third portrait of Miss Laura
See the others here, and here.
In this Christmas portrait for 2017 she is shown sitting in the hall of her home, waiting for her slave-maid to bring her new pair of shoes for the evening ahead with her ‘alpha’ lover at the door. Is the maid her cuckold, or maybe is it one of the men she is speaking to on her mobile, the essential tool for communicating with her hopelessly love-sick admirers!
