Ronald Houghton and Judith Alexander-Graham
Ronald Houghton (Spudz)
I Began painting and sketching in my early teens. I played around with oils and pastels until I started my building apprenticeship in 1962. I did not paint again until I retired in 2016. At present my medium is oil. I am self taught and paint predominantly from photos.
I joined TAC in early 2018 and have enjoyed meeting other artists and sharing my work. To view more of Ronald's work click here
My paintings are my interpretation of the shapes, textures and colours of our wonderful diverse environment. Every colour has a different vibration and energy which enhance our living spaces and us as individuals.To view more of Judiths work click here
