Since returning home to his beloved Cornwall, Medlin's time painting is split between his two favourite subjects - seascapes and yachting. There has been continued success with his yacht paintings at Christies in London where he auctions in their Maritime sales; and along with this, regularly exhibits with his London gallery - Rountree Tryon. This exposure has led to a worldwide following and commissions from some of the biggest marine collectors in the world, with a host of publications featuring Jamie's work.
Christie's have said about Jamie:
Jamie Medlin is one of the finest living marine artists, whose work has garnered international recognition. His near photographic attention to detail is perfectly suited to the yachts he depicts, evoking memories of the golden age of yachting, which when combined with the colour and vibrancy of his paintings makes these works modern masterpieces.More recently I have returned to painting the scenes and views within our wonderful county. The simple aim is to do justice to the beauty which has inspired people forever and continues to bring people back to visit, (who are not lucky enough to live here), year after year. I'm fascinated by the nuances of light, from minute to minute; affected by the time of day, weather conditions, seasons and tides. All these factors combine to create an infinite possibility of effects and scenes, all of which can be pleasing to the viewer. Cornwall's beauty is unquestionably stunning, if I can replicate it, my job is almost done. - Jamie Medlin
