Beginning a new piece, he first applies an underpainting in the scene's dominant colors, then blocks in basic shapes, sketches in his composition, and lays in the lights and darks in a monotone. To create his signature, highly finished canvases, Timothy combines loose, transparent brush strokes to create a subtle glow in facial features with flurries of heavier strokes to indicate movement and dimensionality. In the tranquil scene portrayed in THE GARDEN TERRACE, the woman's face is alight with softness and femininity, while the artist's more dynamic strokes in her skirt, his skilled capture o highlights and silken shine, create strong awareness of her body.
