Jim says of his work:

I often paint and draw in the landscape. This has been an habitual practice for me throughout my career, from my student days to now when I make extensive use of sketchbooks while walking and drawing in the surrounding landscape of my studio in the Isle of Purbeck.This particular landscape of cliffs and stone quarries is often the subject of my paintings. When working outdoors I like to use watercolour and ink in order to make rapid and immediate observations. Looking at landscapes, and the structures within these landscapes, acts as the prompt for me to develop abstract images which are not descriptive. They are meant to offer an expressive and decorative echo of my experience of that particular location.
