Inspired by his sur­rounds

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

INSPIRED by lo­cal scenes, Fre­man­tle res­i­dent Ron Hill will show off his acrylic work in the Al­fred Cove An­nual Awards Ex­cel­lence Ex­hi­bi­tion.

Mr Hill, who has been a mem­ber of the Al­fred Cove Art So­ci­ety for three years, said he had been an artist most of his life.

“I started paint­ing when I was three and I have been doing it on and off my whole life,” he said.

“I was en­cour­aged to do it dur­ing school but never se­ri­ously took it up un­til I re­tired, which was about 10 years ago.

“I started off as a wa­ter colourist

when I moved to Aus­tralia and then I got into acrylics.”

The for­mer painter and dec­o­ra­tor said he was ex­cited about the ex­hi­bi­tion.

“It’s a mix­ture of all sorts, with ama­teurs and pro­fes­sional artists, wa­ter colours, oils, pas­tels, all sorts,” he said.
