Upcoming Exhibition 2019
James is working on a series of paintings of North Norfolk, UK, which will be shown at John Mitchell Fine Paintings, Mayfair, at the end of this year. Dates are yet to be announced. In contrast to his exhibitions based on mountain landscapes these paintings will deal with horizontal compositions. The paintings will be strongly influenced by the oil sketches of John Constable, which James has studied since a young boy.

Since March 2018 James has been mentoring Dougie Adams, an ex soldier wounded in Afghanistan, who is now trying to become a professional artist. Dougie is part of a group of ex service personel who are being helped by the charity Style for Soldiers, set up by Emma Willis in 2007. Their work was exhibited at a high profile exhibition ‘Art in the Aftermath’ in Central London in November. Dougie sold all his work and has received numerous commissions. Read more.
