James Lynch



James Lynch is a painter of the English landscape and skies, often inspired by wild flying with his paraglider.

He paints using the ancient medium of egg tempera, which he makes from raw ground pigments and egg yolks from his hens. The paintings are built up over time with many glazes of paint. As well as working on gesso-coated panels, he makes smaller, more impromptu paintings on sized paper.

James exhibits at The Portland Gallery, London W1 and his forthcoming solo exhibition  runs from 25 September to 11 October 2024. For catalogue and more information www.portlandgallery.com 

James’ work is in several public and private collections.

“Lynch is very much part of the archetypal English landscape and its mythology. He belongs to a long line of truly English painters.”
