A bit about his work: ''[...] In landscapes, seascapes , portraits and nudes he always starts on location or with live models making sketches and watercolours which will then enable him to work in his studio. [..] He is more interested in atmospheres than in reality and tries to convey his sensations and simplify this reality in order to retain only the essential while at the same time focusing on colours [..]'' translated from Midi Libre, December 2016
Largely self-taught despite participation in several workshops (Fine Arts evening classes, Glasgow Arts Club,...), JN Le Junter has been painting since the 1970s but only began to exhibit in 1995.
