Hi my name is James, born in 1946 in the then small town of Irvine in north Ayrshire Scotland. Learned hands on, the basics of how to paint from my father using oils. Did not paint for many years until found this method of hand painting using a digital oil painting medium combined with a tablet. Digital oil painting is still quite new and gives the owner an artwork which is considered a unique painting. I paint without limitations as to my choice of subjects from still life and landscapes to portraits, figurative, horse and dance movement. The style of my artwork is sometimes contemporary yet very traditional, this inspired by impressionist paintings and influenced by realistic styling to convey character and / or movement of my subjects hopefully allowing the viewer to enjoy a glimpse of the mood.
