Alan King, Autumn On The Torridge
A beautiful oil on canvas depicting a riverside view in Torridge, North Devon. The artist, Alan King, has used a muted palette of gentle browns, oranges and greens, to give the scene a sense of tranquillity and calm.
Areas of the image, such as the leaves on the trees, have been created with short brushstrokes and impasto paint. Whereas the river appears flat as it gently reflects the riverbank on our right.
Alan King spent many years of his life in Malvern, Worcestershire, and as such developed a fondness for the traditional English countryside. Great Malvern is situated at the foot of the Malvern Hills and would’ve undoubtedly been an inspiration for him.
