His cub’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
I love how raw and strong this image is. There is a level of urgency to it, the sort of lust that cannot wait. I love the textures, all the perfect imperfections that show us a real woman, proud of her body and her sexuality. It’s wonderfully honest and very sexy.
The first thing I noticed about this was obviously the colour; that dangerous, Amsterdam red. As you look closer, you see the sexy glimpse of flesh. It’s beautifully framed, managing to be very exciting without revealing a lot, leaving the viewer firmly outside but looking in with the naughty thrill of the voyeur.
I wondered if including the lovely Molly’s contribution would make me too much of a teacher’s pet, but it was just too beautiful. It’s unexpected and creative. I have always loved pre-Raphaelite paintings, and this is pure Millais. The huge leaves protecting the fairy-like creature within, the otherworldly quality of the light… Gorgeous.
This one is such a cheerful, optimistic picture. It puts me in mind of an animal coming out of hibernation, sniffing the air, feeling the sun, ready for adventure.
This is beautifully composed, with that huge deep blue sky. Another otherworldly image, she simultaneously looks like an innocent former mermaid, gazing wistfully out to sea, and a predatory siren, bewitching passing sailors. Who could resist?
