1 Fine Mixed Media Original British Contemporary Art Painting Portrait Cow with ear back.
Distinctly signed by the Listed International worldwide known British artist James Bartholomew.
Subject portrait of a cow with ear back.
Mixed media painting on paper.
In visual art, mixed media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed.
While his paintings cover several subjects, the approach is fairly consistent.
The way he paints is quite energetic, with gestural, spontaneous marks and sweeping strokes.
Since many of the subjects he chooses are ‘moving’ sea, skies, animals, the marks hopefully convey some of this motion and energy and give the paintings they're liveliness.
He works on a comparatively large scale which allows for a loose approach.
Much smaller and he finds the process becomes a bit fiddly!
Working in pastel & watercolour together, the mediums soon becoming mixed up.
The pastel will sometimes get wet and moved around within the paint, becoming simply a pigment.
Other times it is used over the top of the dry paint.
Through this method, the vibrancy can be reintroduced with the pastels and the painting can be changed at any stage.
This leaves plenty of room to experiment on the surface without worrying about spoiling the painting, which he finds quite liberating.
He like his paintings to be cheerful so my subjects are usually things that he find interesting and uplifting in one way or another.
Mounted & set in a large heavy black wooden frame and glazed.
Such a delightful contemporary masterpiece so pleasing to the eye.
This is one of his larger finest animal works.
A great collectors investment wall display item.
James Bartholomew is fascinated by the interplay between a subject and light and how changing weather can alter the essence of something so completely.”
The things he paints are basically the things he loves.
Having a love for the outdoors, for animals and for nature in general.
