Digital Prints

Using as much source material as possible, James Mindham brings the past back to life using a variety of techniques to create historical digital paintings. Primarily using maps as backdrops, James creates a virtual 3D model of a scene; he uses old photographs with close examination of surviving features and documentary sources to increase accuracy.

Each print is 46cm x 26cm and is printed on high quality, textured archival paper. The prints are unmounted and have no border so they look as if they have come straight from the easel. This enables you to choose your own mount and frame. Each print will be signed and numbered. Please allow 7-10 days for delivery of these prints as they are printed to your order.

'The Fish House', The Londs, Overstrand

Based on the Tithe Map of 1838, this scene features Overstrand Fish House which has long since vanished. The Fish House is entirely conjectural and is based on the footprint seen on the Tithe Map; the other buildings largely survive to this day.

This is one of a series of prints developed digitally from original historic sources of north Norfolk scenes at the end of the 19th century. It is available as part of a limited edition of 80 prints.
