James Green

James works from his studio in Peterborough - Initially trained as a technical illustrator, by the time he'd left college in 1996, the industry had moved away from traditional drawing and into computers. Not wishing to embrace this new technology he turned to fine art and quickly established a high reputation as a realist artist.
His subject matter has evolved from landscapes to railway paintings, which he finds more challenging and yet something with which his technical background greatly assists. James certainly does not shy away from detail, and creates artwork by carefully building paint layers using a mix of acrylic ink, gouache and watercolour.
Being a self-representing artist James is ever-present, displaying work at many exhibitions and events etc. He is also frequently invited to demonstrate painting techniques to art groups country-wide.
