About james shepherd
There are no upcoming events
Hi, welcome to my artwork.
My name is James Shepherd and I have been hand painting in digital oil using Artrage software for approximately 20 years.
There has been a long learning curve to master the finer details of hand painting in this medium, but I find it most enjoyable, you never seem to stop learning new techniques to use.
Please bear in mind that you do have to paint, it does not do it for you. I build my own colour palettes and develop my own brush/pallet knives and style to use.
I consider each painting I complete as a "Digital original"
My overall style is Impressionistic which includes: landscapes sea and sky, animals - mainly horses, still life, flowers and plants, female figurative, nude and erotic, emotive and sensual, people and portraits.
I am now painting using earth tone colours, I know it is a contradiction to use earth tones with impressionism , but that is what I am doing.
Earth tone is a colour scheme that draws from a colour palette of browns, tans, warm greys, greens, oranges, whites, and some reds, and some blues.
The colours in an earth tone scheme are muted and flat in an emulation of the natural colours found in dirt, moss, trees and rocks.
Many earth tones originate from clay earth pigments, such as umber, ochre, and sienna
Why do I paint.
Because Painting takes me into enjoyable new adventures. There is always something beautiful about the blank canvas which you are going to change the meaning of with your artwork, each one being so uniquely beautiful to your mind. It's a challenge full of learning and new techniques which add to the adventure. As you indulge deep into your artwork your thoughts change, your emotions change. I love painting and have to create.
Please take a look at my collections.
Thank you for visiting my galleries.
