Big Brush Watercolour:Ron Ranson
With infectious enthusiasm, Ron gets down to the basic techniques of painting in watercolour with his big hake brush. With outdoor locations in the autumn colouring of the Forest of Dean, much of the work is done in the studio and Ron concentrates on painting skies, trees, foregrounds, water and buildings in a free, loose manner.
