Tim Irving

I specialise in vibrant and colourful paintings in oil and acrylic media with both real and imagined subject matter. I particularly like to experiment with new textures and structured surfaces in acrylic and mixed media using all sorts of techniques - from plastic film, scratching and marble paste to alcohol dripping.

My exhibited works here include landscapes and still life studies in oil to highly textured abstract works in acrylic. Landscapes range from African vistas, fantasy worlds and mountains to British seascapes. The thing I really strive to avoid with acrylic is a 'chocolate box' style of over-pretty realism. I want my works to instill some emotional response - whether good or bad doesn't really matter.
