I recently finished "Pillow Poem 21," a japanese Shunga painting of two boys making love while riding horseback through the waves of a turbulent sea.
The painting is below: click on the link to purchase a large 13 by 19 inch print for 45 dollars, or a smaller print for 17
I had a photo shoot with Danimal a couple of months back for my painting "Hood Ornaments." At the same time, I took photos for a bunch of other projects as well; I knew I wanted to make this painting, so I had taken photos then as well. First, I had already downloaded photos of horses in the poses I wanted; I photographed us making love in the proper poses to be able to photoshop us onto the back of a horse later; below is the finished stock photo of us on the back of the horse.
Than I drew us on handmade bamboo paper from China using vegetable ink and a fine brush. Below is a photo of the painting in progress. Finally, when the ink drawing was complete, I painted it with watercolors.
Here are some other photos from the same photo shoot, all with the intention of making horse-back love paintings, some of which will soon follow!
Danimal, looking adorable
And a few more for other projects
And another painting I did using the stock for the horseback love, although now they are up in a tree
