Join renowned artist James Pratt for his exciting, inspiring workshop.
Now that he has a home in France, James spends time traveling to the village marketplaces, sea ports and cafes throughout Europe where he carefully composes the scenes through the lens of his digital camera and then sketches the mood and scenes in either pencil or watercolor. Upon returning to his studio, he puts palette knife to canvas. 

James Pratt was introduced to art at young age by his father, a very accomplished artist. His life has always been involved with design and creativity. Pratt worked as an international marketing director while in New Zealand and the U.S. before beginning his professional art career.  “I am blessed to have this profession and it was possible through the help of my wife, Beverly.”

As a prominent fine art collector writes: “The work is very full of life and color and causes the viewer to feel inspired to want to travel, visit and have this kind of an experience. If not actually travel, then to enjoy that special adventure, vicariously, through the paintings that he has created.”
