Robert King enjoys working in oils, water colours, gouche and pastel. His subject matter is diverse, and he is equally acclaimed for his beach scenes, the Solent (which he looks at daily from the windows of his coastguard's cottage), Venice and the North Norfolk Coast. His figurative paintings of interiors and the nude are greatly admired and sought after by collectors, they convey warmth and intimacy to the viewer without loosing his superb sense of colour, composition and light.
