Andrew King ROI IEA EAGMA
My method of working often begins with quickly and freely painted small oil panels produced on location. I sometimes build upon these initial studies in my studio, using them to produce larger works while trying to retain the freshness and spontaneity of the original oil sketch. My aim is always to attempt to capture a sense of movement, or change in the landscape. The coastline and landscape of East Anglia provides much of my inspiration, but I enjoy painting in Italy, France and further afield.
Andrew was awarded a David Murray Scholarship (Landscape painting) from the RA School, upon graduation from a BA Fine Art Degree.
