He has painted Arabian Dhows and historic craft off Oman and around the Arabian Gulf. He has also been the Official Artist to one of the BOC Races and some of the America's Cup. Im works mostly in oils on fine linen canvas or board.Tim is self-taught and uses traditional oil techniques, rather like the methods used by the old dutch marine artists, applying thin washes to achieve an almost translucent effect rarely seen in contemporary marine art.
