Above the Sentinel, Oil Painting by James McGrew

0.00

"I strive to interpret nature with my brush, not merely copying a scene but rather conveying the feelings, emotions, weather, light, energy, movement of an experience.  I want the viewer to feel the wind, moisture, sunshine of the elements and feel the excitement or relaxation I felt while painting on location.   I hope my works inspire others to love and protect our landscape/wildlife and cherish our valuable human interrelationships with each other and the environment."  

James paints en plein air and later orchestrates his field studies with photography and strong visual memory to create his refined studio paintings. Such works often tell stories or serve as complex metaphors.  His style is most influenced by a combination of the Hudson River School, California Impressionists and French Impressionists, and Romantics.
