James Bartholomew works from his Mill House studio in Lancashire. His love of the sea has taken him around the British coast.
James' style is always vibrant, animated and energetic. His collectable animal portraits have received several notable awards.
James took a BA at Leicester Polytechnic in 1992 and has sinced exhibited his works, that have taken him all over the world, at several popular shows. He is a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and The Manchester Acadamy of Fine art.
James describes the way he paints as 'energetic, with getural, spontaneous marks and sweeping strokes'. The changing mood of his subjects always compliment his painting style.
His love for the sea is the main draw of inspiration for James and is a reason for his repeated visits to the coasts of Cornwall and the Scottish Outer Islands. His animal paintings have in particular become increasingly collectable.
Working on a large scale allows for a 'loose approach'. He works in pastel and watercolours but these often become mixed up. James likes paintings to be cheerful and he chooses subjects that he finds interesting and uplifting in one way or another.
This exquisite and humourous range of greeting cards has been produced by two very talented British watercolour artists.
All of the cards are blank inside and cello-wrapped with a country green envelope.
This card includes the caption '...... but I want to be a sausage dog!' and measures 6 x 6".
