Original charcoal drawing on paper by James Shipton
My works are heavily influenced by the art work of Degas and Gustav Klimt, and my considerable amount of time spent in Ireland with my Irish wife and family.
My desire is to capture the moment, the movement and human form of the Irish musician. I achieve this through a process of capturing reality through life drawing using charcoal sketches, breaking it down to deliver an impression of the human form.
Following the breakdown of the human form, I use the sketches to the build and create paintings in oils.
