About The Artist:

George R. James is an American artist who lives and works in California. Though much of James' early work was done in oil on canvas, he is an avid and highly skilled watercolorist. He received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees at the California State University, Long Beach. He extensively studied California Scene painters, those who painted the landscapes of California during the early to mid twentieth century, like Rex Brandt and Phil Dike. In his own work, James developed an abstract style where his forms often interact with geometric shapes. He became a celebrated California painter when his work started to be sold and exhibited in local galleries. Since, he has exhibited internationally, including at the 2007 Jiangsu Watercolor Society International Watercolor Exhibition in Nanjing, China. James has won several prestigious national awards and has been featured in many articles and books. James has been sharing his knowledge and skills 'Emeritus' of Art. James is a member of American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.

James' recent experimentation with a synthetic paper called Yupo allows him to gain a richer color than he would have on watercolor paper. Yupo calls for the painstaking process of careful layering on of the pigments, which nicely accommodate James' cubist experiments with color and design.

Though a much earlier work, The Falls is a clear starting point for James' later work. The artist has carefully layered paint in a range of translucencies. giving extensive depth to the work. Though James had used local, or true to life, colors for James' study of a family farm in Oregon.
