    Thank you for the links Hamish

  • Ok this is going to sound all wrong and maybe its the internet presentation of his art, I know my own work looks average on the web, some would say average either way however,

    can someone who has seen the STUDY in the flesh what differentiates Michael’s work. I mean its beautiful stylised, perhaps done on 10×8 plates ? superbly detailed when printed massive ? He has great shape and contrast and he uses a big stopper well. That aside most of Tim’s work on the site has a much bigger wow factor, the opening panoramic with multiple depth of trees and colour is stunning.

    Although with his printing skills of Black and White perhaps I have answered my own question and as art is subjective its probably just me.

    I would like to be educated here, not flamed if possible :-)

    I look at someone like Stuart Redler who to me has an amazing grasp of shape and contrast in B&W.
