About James Shepherd

I was born in 1946 in the then small town of Irvine in north Ayrshire Scotland.
Learned the basics of how to paint from my father using oils.
Did not paint for many years until found a method of hand painting using an oil painting medium combined with a tablet.
The style of my artwork is very traditional inspired by impressionist paintings and influenced by realistic styling to convey character and / or movement of my subjects hopefully allowing the viewer to enjoy a glimpse of the mood.

I paint because I have to, it's as simple as that. It is really therapy for me, it keeps me happy to be constantly creating. I make many things, not just painting, but I am constantly creating something.

I paint for myself first, because that's part of who I am. then for the gratification that comes from other people's liking what I do. It's really a good feeling when I paint a portrait of a person or a beautiful dancer's nice to have others appreciate my work.
I love seeing the way light constantly changes around us. Color, form, light -- all of these are tools to communicate the vision of something that gives me pleasure.

I like to explore different mediums and combinations. My current favourites are digital painting and metal forming on copper using the Repousse technique.

I paint subjects as diverse as flowers, horses, landscapes, dance, figurative, portraits, architecture, animals and erotic sensual and figurative nudes.
