Some recent originals by the landscape painter James C. Groves

Directions : enlarge thumbs by clicking mouse on images.

Updated 05/13 : "Here are some of my smaller recent works. These paintings are oil on Canvas or panel. A few scenes were painted on site though most were created in my studio. My usual approach to composition is that of the grand landscape. My paint is 'rubbed-up' with dry pigments and walnut oil; this paint is then tempered with resinous varnishes and mediums to achieve the effect desired."
