Where it is possible to be in close communication with a client, Tim feels comfortable following a detailed brief. Where communication is limited, Tim prefers to operate with more creative freedom. Tim is drawn to compositions that combine figures and boats. In selecting commissions the artist is flexible regarding location and will consider coastal scenes, dry docks, landscapes and seascapes. Tim can work from life, from photographs, or from reference material. The duration of a project depends largely on its size; for example a smaller painting may take several days whilst a larger painting (eg 52"x46") may take months.
