  • 1 Fine Original British Contemporary Art Painting Portrait Cow with ear back Listed James Bartholomew R.S.M.A.   
  • 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.  
  • Since 1992, James has worked as a contemporary painter.  
  • He has a strong reputation within the British contemporary art market and his recognisable, ‘loose and energetic’ style has gained widespread acclaim.
