Postponed until early autumn 2020

James is working on a series of paintings of North Norfolk, UK, which will be shown at John Mitchell Fine Paintings, Mayfair. In contrast to his exhibitions based on mountain landscapes these paintings will deal with horizontal compositions. The paintings are strongly influenced by the oil sketches of John Constable, which James has studied since a young boy.


November 2019

This exhibition of work from James’s studio, included ongoing landscapes and work for commissions. There were paintings from his projects with the British Secret Intelligence Service MI6, HRH The Prince of Wales, Aston Martin, James Bond, Queen’s Tennis Club and the British Army. The exhibition was intended to give a glimpse of the range of work James has created over the last ten years, as well as focusing on his landscape work which is central to his practice.
