Jim has done many painting workshops
over the years and his students have always enjoyed watching the ease with
which his rich, fluid, brushstrokes become lines of trees, distant mountains
or rushing streams. Or they may become paintings of city streets in London
or New York thronged with shoppers and hemmed about with tall buildings.
Whatever the subject, the approach is the same: sound drawing, attention to
design principles and a loose, almost abstract use of color and brushwork -
and the desire to catch the flavor of the scene before him. Follow
