In an extension of this and as an experiment he created “The Rainbow Love Collection” of images which are trending and selling across different arenas for their quirky, vibrant style.
After experimenting with Ink pens, with a water wash and adding Liquitex heavy body paint, I came with this effective look. Tim Yates.
Looking at the images they have a central theme: the primary subject is in black and white with details added in the rainbow spectrum giving them a touch of whimsicality and making them stand out, a visual treat to the eye that makes you smile.
With the image of “In Ya Face,” we see the splatter effect of the colored inks and the playful wink of the man featured in the portrait. He is playing with the contrast of the color splashes over the ink on paper in black and white.

Finding the right models has been a major part of the series and has led to Tim working closely with professional models and photographers to source the right people to create the dynamic of the image he wants to showcase. Despite or perhaps because of the simplicity of the theme it’s easy to overlook the intricacy and accuracy of Tims portrait work which in and of itself is stunningly detailed.
