Tim Burden is a portrait artist living in Bath UK. He specialises in contemporary realist portraits and figure paintings.

Portraiture has kept Tim rather busy since an early age! The art of capturing the essence of a person; a spontaneous, momentary expression flashing across a face; the unrestricted language of the body. Portrait painting, to Tim, is a celebration of the depth and honesty of a one-to-one relationship, experienced in this case between subject and viewer. It is an important part of the role Tim plays in this world – his way of studying, recording and glorifying the detail he sees. 

Tim hangs his artistry on accurate drawing and traditional painting techniques. He paints exclusively “alla prima” in oils. His influences include John Singer Sargent, Eugene Delacroix, Edward Hopper and Franz Kline.
