James Bartholomew’s aim in his work is to convey to the viewer the mood of the scene, portraying the weather, the light, the movement and energy that he sees. Looking at his wonderful dynamic seascapes, you can see that he has achieved his aim in spades.
This is a breathtaking print and its impact is enhanced by the framing. The white frame and tiered card surround complement the picture perfectly. Workmanship is of very high quality and framing is very sturdy without giving the appearance of heaviness. The framed picture is excellent value for money. The only thing which could have enhanced the picture further would have been the option to have it mounted with non-reflective glass - not something I personally would usually want, but it is hung in a very light room, producing lots of unwanted reflection over the picture surface.
