Literature: For Tim Allen, working in the landscape - wielding charcoal, gouache, ink and other water-based media - is only one half of his practice. Working from his Blue Mountains studio, a large converted machinery shed with huge doors opening out to the surrounding bushland, Allen makes large works, mainly in oils; paintings which are an expansion and a distillation of his plein air works. He exploits the qualities of oil paint, whilst retaining the energy of his outdoor studies. Whether indoors or out, the influence of the natural world is always apparent in his work.
