Drawing, painting, digital media
Inspired by the sea and shorelines of North Devon, all of James’ pictures begin as detailed pencil drawings. These drawings are then scanned, printed several times onto a variety of papers and worked on using a range of materials. All completed workings are then re-scanned and digitally layered together to create a final digital print. This process allows James to consider each aspect of a composition individually, be it colour and shade, or mid-tones and highlights, and to fully explore the interplay of light in his pictures. A graduate of Cardiff School of Art and Design, James works with various schools and communities throughout the county, teaching skills to the next generation of artists. He lives and creates his art in Braunton.
