In Watercolor Landscapes from Photographs, Ron Ranson shows us how to use photographs in a creative manner, emphasizing that they should not be slavishly copied. Using a selection of photographs as a guide, he paints a snow scene, a misty atmospheric creek, a river valley with bridge, a town centre and combines two separate photographs to produce one painting.
Ron Ranson's watercolor paintings are both impressionistic and representational. Using his signature hake brush, Ron popularized the use of the hake brush for landscape painting. His aim is to produce strong and colorful paintings with an economy of strokes and a limited palette. He teaches the freedom of expression and simplicity. You will learn how to paint decisively and quickly. Strong design principles are emphasized, and his English sense of humor keeps the you laughing. Ron is an artist, teacher, and a best selling author of a large number of books. He is one of the world's most traveled watercolor teachers, giving workshops and private tuition to students on every continent for many years. Ron is a seemingly tireless watercolorist, with a worldwide reputation, having written over 25 books on painting and made many instructional videos that are sold throughout the world. He also writes articles for art magazines in England, Holland, Norway, and Australia, and has been the European editor of the prestigious publication, the "International Artist".
