James Pocklington lives on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, the changing seasons, and the huge variety of wildlife they bring, are a constant source of inspiration. James studied BA (Hons) Computer Games Art at the University of Teesside. While building on his traditional art skills, this also introduced him to the benefits of digital art in his workflow. During university James started to seriously experiment with watercolours, impressed by the variety of hues and textures that could be achieved. When James paints, he hopes to capture the vibrancy of his subjects, using loose strokes and strong colours.
Venue: Alma Cottage, High Street
