James Gadbury


I am an oil painter.

Not always, but forever will be - immersed in the natural world.
I'm attracted to various subjects, but favour landscapes and painting outdoors.

A representational painter, I mix my colours using 3 primaries + white.
My approach - loose, expressive, evident brushstrokes with thick knife-paint.
Enough visual information to convey a picture, but viewed up-close, simply marks. An illusion.

Thick oils have a presence and physicality, the surface ‘a life of its own’.
It draws the touch, the artwork not only an image but an object.

Art is for us all - I like to share mine.
