Oregon Lake (after Ron Ranson)

Oregon Lake (after Ron Ranson)

Good old Rancid Ron - great interpretation Stephen.

Didn't realise that was his nickname! Thanks for your always encouraging comments. I did learn a lot from his books, teaching the basics of watercolour, often 'simples is best'.

A Ron Ranson video got me back into painting many, many years ago! I have one or two of his books and also a CD or two! A great teacher! Very nice painting Stephen!

Thanks Sarah, there is a lot of snobbery in the art world but certainly not with Ron's approach, do you know if he still with us? I know he moved to the US some years ago.

Hang on Studio Wall

I went to the art club last night and did not know what to paint, so I chose an image from an old Ron Ranson book.

About the Artist
Stephen Slater

I am a self taught amateur painter, I mostly paint landscapes in watercolour but I 'dabble' in other mediums from time to time. I really enjoy my art, especially painting outdoors when the weather allows.
