Final reminder that this Sunday it is prompt time again!
This weeks Sinful Sunday guest is someone who agreed to write one when they were still a Twitter user but when they left worried that they were now ineligible. Luckily I managed to get in touch with them and reassure them that they were more than welcome on Sinful Sunday. Writing a round-up post is open to anyone, you do no have to be a blogger to do one so if you are a avid reader of Sinful Sunday and fancy doing a round-up then I would absolutely love to hear from you.
In the meantime I am delight to welcome the Twitter artist formerly known as @19syllables
19syllables top 5 pics of the week
What a treat to be asked to do the Sinful Sunday round-up. I have such admiration for the people that regularly submit photographs here; grappling with technical, emotional and artistic challenges on a weekly basis. I’ve really enjoyed being tasked with choosing my favourites instead of lurking, cowardly behind my screen as I usually do! My choices are by no means a list of the best, just the five which chimed with me the most, in no particular order. I do hope you enjoy my selection.
There are so many things about this image that I like, and I think perhaps they are the same things that the sitter alludes to struggling with. I like the softness of her flesh and the sculptural quality, and also the different textures; dimpled hands, smooth plains and undulating ripples. I like how she grasps herself with her manicured fingers, and how she fills the entire frame. It drips femininity, and demands an emotional response from the viewer.
I completely overlooked this picture on my first couple of passes, perhaps because of the seasonal message. Then I noticed that photograph itself has a dark, retro, carnival feel which I find to be a compellingly bittersweet twist on Easter. It feels like an after-the-event shot; deliciously rumpled and frayed as she lights herself a cigarette. The red curtain and her lacy ankle socks, together with her bunny ears, naked-flame and vodka add sumptuous layers, building a story in a way that I really enjoyed.
I’ve nothing clever to say about this. It’s confident, naked, smart and happy, which, to me, are the four sexiest things on the planet.
This shot is so evocative, the harsh light and sharp focus in the foreground partly obscure the figure behind. She reclines deliciously, a hand trailed towards herself and chin tipped upwards in pleasure. It firmly cast the viewer in the role of voyeur, I even found myself moving my head to better see around the projector, to get a better view of the action, I was so drawn in.
The drawn image is cleverly executed and sexy here, but so is the photograph, with the brush balanced on the figure’s back giving a lovely fact/fiction jolt. I know the feeling Tabitha describes well, when a piece is going well I’m often tempted to leave it unfinished rather than embracing the risks of ruining it by continuing. I’ve got to work on that.
A huge thank you to the artist formerly know as @19syllables. Sadly I can not point you to where you will find her, you will just have to trust me when I say, she is out there somewhere.
Blast from the Past
I adore this image. Editing it with the selective colour just adds a real zing to it, highlighting how the fabulous frills frame the shape of her beautiful bottom and the way the panties run down the centre of her ass and disappear between her thighs I find intoxicating.
