Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).

Parasol Beach

HongTao - Man with a Parasol

Images featuring umbrellas on beaches have had to compete with something of an iconic cliche in recent years, but this straightforward picture of a handsome, young man arriving at the beach, oiled up and ready for a day in the sun by-passes self-conscious artiness and has a strong gay vibe. His loose shorts contrive to be almost as naughty as closer fitting, racy styles. The artist's casual use of green spotting, suggests not just sea spray but the sensual wetting of the body.
