Collection: James Bartholomew

“I am fascinated by the interplay between a subject and light and how changing weather can alter the essence of something so completely.”
Since 1992, James has worked as a contemporary landscape and seascape painter.  He has a strong reputation within the British contemporary art market and his recognisable, ‘loose and energetic’ style has gained widespread acclaim. Strong light and colour are often central to James’ paintings and dynamic viewpoints are a feature in many.
James mostly works in pastel & watercolour together, the mediums soon becoming mixed up. 
All prints and canvasses are limited editions, which are numbered and signed by the artist. These finest quality archival prints use lightfast pigmented ink on heavyweight acid-free paper.
The canvas prints are stretched over a high quality wooden frame. The image goes right to the edge of the canvas.
James has overseen the production of each of them to ensure accurate colour matching.
