Ronnie Doyle

I am a self-taught artist, preferring to tell the story, rather than paint the subject in great detail. Whilst I only took up painting in watercolour in 2001, art has always played an important part in my life. 

I love to paint en-plein air (in the open air), which inspires me to be more expressive.  My style is very loose and impressionistic.  I also greatly enjoy pen and wash, and drawing. Every day I draw something. Any success comes with practise, practise and practise. 

Portrait painting is a skill I have yet to tackle.  However I am working on it!

Light and tone are very important in any painting.  Light gives vibrancy to the finished work.

Strong colours play an important role in my work. Although sometimes I do paint more gently.

I greatly admire the work of Archibald Knox, Norman Sayle and Edward Seago. Joseph Zbukvic, Alvaro Castagnet and Trevor Chamberlain are my inspirational living artists. I have been influenced by them all, and have evolved my own style in the process.

I am pleased to take on commissions and provide prints by request. 

I also paint “In the style of” certain artists.

I really hope that you enjoy my work. It’s my privilege to have been asked to exhibit at the Hodgson Loom Gallery in September 2017.
