From 2013-15 King completed master studies of paintings by Sandro Botticelli, Jan Vermeer and Caravaggio, in homage to these exquisite artists. Two paintings below created ‘after’ Vermeer are rare archaeological ostracons with others ‘after’ Caravaggio and Vermeer incorporating other motifs. The act of copying works increases visual literacy, attention to detail allowing the appreciation of different colour palettes and compositions.
