Working with great immediacy direct from the subject with bold mark-making, Tin's oil paintings fall within the traditional conception of landscape composition but also display a primary concern for the performance of the paint itself. Her sculptural impasto, relieved with spacious glazes, with the emphasis on light truly constructs her imagery. Thus Tin’s work has its roots in the tradition of Constable and Turner, but is characterised by the handling of paint more recognisable in artists such as Auerbach, and Freud.
After some health issues concerning oil paint Tin has moved to painting landscapes in watercolour; also watercolour based mixed media, focusing on the translucent and layered qualities of the paint to achieve her recognised sense of light, with greater emphasis on line instead of mass as previously. She is also using wool/silk fibre as a medium, using the layers of fibres to mix her colours.
