Leg Art -“Tartan Fling”
Leg art for want of a better term formed a main part of my portfolio of paintings when I first began. This piece is based on an earlier painting of stripey legs called “New Shoes”. Fun to paint and fun to look at.
This is the first piece of leg art which has featured tartan or has had a distinctly Scottish feel to it. Most of the kilt artwork has featured male figures so it has been good to redress the balance a little and add a female piece to the collection.
Tartan fascinates me, from the history of the clans to the actual designs and the geometry. There seems to be something almost mathematical going on. The colours are obviously exciting too and I tried to make this a vibrantly coloured piece.
At the time of writing, this is the latest leg art which I have produced and somewhat unusually, this original painting is in oil and not acrylic.
This painting is 3 x 2 feet and has quite a hi-impact when hung on a wall.

I created Leg art on canvas in various forms when I first started to paint again. This was in the early 2000’s. There was something about the simplicity and high impact of the completed artwork on canvas which I really loved.
The source material for this leg painting was Monique. She also features in the female paintings section where there is a painting of her face.
Like many of my earlier artworks, this paintings reflects the fact that, at this point, I was not far removed from my previous career in Interior design. In design, I was very fond of white spaces. Balance and symmetry were also key in design. As simple as this canvas may seem, it reflects some of these elements.
This painting varied from many of the other early leg paintings. I painted it in oils, rather than acrylic and it was also a monochrome painting.

Leg Paintings – “Crossed”
I began producing paintings of ladies legs around 2003, well before I began to paint full time.
These paintings were very design -led and completely different from the paintings which I produce today, however, I have included them in the latest update of the art galleries on here as they show the story of how my painting has changed throughout the years.
“Crossed” was a very popular pop art painting. The first version of it was one of my first canvases to be sent overseas, to Paris in this case. I have reproduced the canvas several times and it remains a favourite early work and still looks very striking in the flesh.
Several people have asked if I have a leg fetish. The answer is “no” bu tthere is something abou tht eleg paintings which I loved to create. I think they are great fun and it is incredible the amount of hits that this website gets for “sexy leg art”.

Original Artwork Sold,
Leg drawings and paintings have made an appearance again in my studio. Paintings featuring legs formed a substantial part of my early portfolio. In recent years, I have not painted or created so much leg art.
This week however, as part of the 28 Drawings Later project, I have produced this graphite and charcoal leg art. It is one of a series of new leg drawings.
I wanted this drawing to be realistic but stop short of hyper-realistic or photographic. There is something about the grain and pencil strokes showing which, for me, adds so much to a sketch or drawing.
This drawing forms part of a series which i have been working on during a period when I have mainly been working in graphite and charcoal as opposed to painting. These have been fascinating to work on and I think that I will be working and experimenting with various forms of drawing media for some time to come.
This artwork is drawn on A4 paper.
