Philip James

United Kingdom


Translation in progress

Philip's practice as a painter spans fifty years, beginning with landscapes made on site in Sussex, Cornwall and the Lake District in the mid 1960s, leading to city views of London and Paris. He has worked on corporate commissions for businesses in the UK and USA, and regularly undertakes private portraits of individuals, families and children, working at his London studio.

Philip generally works in oil on linen canvas, building studies in finely graded layers of a selected colour range. He generally prefers a subtle key to more strident tints, with use of floated washes giving an airy feel, particularly in delicate children’s portraits.
