Ron Thomas

Ron began serious painting in 1983 in watercolour under the tuition of David Taylor and achieved a number of awards.

He commenced painting in oils about 1994, again achieving a number of awards for his works and considers that painting ‘en plein air’ forms an important part of his endeavours preferering to work in over-cast weather conditions as this presents to him landscape in two terms – colour and form. From these he endeavours to express the subject in the manner of colour, tone and pattern. When Ron’s only references are his photographs he strives to create a colourful and abstract image.

Ron is currently a member of the Bass Coast Artists’ Society and the McClelland Guild of Artists.
