He went on to be made Ruskin Master of Drawing at Oxford University from 1985 to 1987.

      Tindles first solo show was held in 1954 at the Piccadilly Gallery, London. Subsequent solo exhibitions were held throughout the UK and Europe including 57 Gallery, Edinburgh (1957), Metropole Gallery, Folkestone (1963 and 1965), Galleria Carbonesi, Bologna and Galleria Vinciana, Milan (1968) and Gallerie XX, Hamburg (1974, 1977, 1980 and 1985). He showed regularly with Fischer Fine Art from 1985 and with the Redfern Gallery from 1994. Retrospectives of his work were held at Coventry City Art Gallery (1957) and at the Northampton Art Gallery (1972).

      Tindles work has also been included in many key group exhibitions including the 'International Biennale of Realistic Art', Bruges (1958), John Moores 'Liverpool Exhibition' (1959 and 1961), 'British Painting 74', at the Hayward Gallery, London (1974) and '25 Years of British Painting', at the Royal Academy of Arts (1977).
