Richard King MA Landscape paintings on glass.
Richard King is a well-known Artist from Birmingham UK. He is a part-time art teacher with over 20 years experience in teaching art in schools and colleges and has a master's degree in fine Art from Wolverhampton University.
All his paintings have been created from spectacular scenes witnessed first and photographed by himself then created in the studio using a unique technique of painting in which he paints backwards on the opposite side of glass to create mesmerizing landscapes and seascapes. His unconventional method was honed after experimenting with various surface to achieve the results he sort after. Working on glass allows Richard King to create a softer gradient of colour and tone and a stronger range of contrast allowing him to create the vivid scenes he could not achieve on canvas.
