With an ecletic range of subjects, Tim’s graphite pencil drawings strive for photorealism. He is at home drawing still life, landscape or portrait. With only light and shadow to work with, contrast is what makes these drawings leap off the wall. Most of the drawings in this exhibit are 18″x24″ or larger.
