R W Hedge

R.W. Hedge, a native Texan, has traveled the country to gain knowledge and inspiration for his art. Ronnie has captured the glory of the American landscape and its wildlife since he taught himself to paint when he was fifteen. Being self-taught, he has developed a unique style that is exciting and groundbreaking.

As a teenager, Ronnie did not think about using an easel or a mixing palette and he did not realize that canvas was stretched before painting. He would simply cut out pieces of canvas whatever size he thought he needed and then drag in plywood from outside to tack them to. The results were big pieces of plywood leaning against every surface in the house with odd-sized paintings tacked to them. Since he was not using a palette, he would just squeeze paint from the tubes right onto the brushes; any mixing took place on the canvas. This gave Ronnie a rough texture but also the deep color and rough line he was looking for.

Ronnie uses a palette now but he is still looking for deep tones and texture. What he achieves are breathtaking scenes full of light; “Colors that are luminous appeal to me most of all. Every composition in nature has its precise moments of perfection, when the contrast and colors are most inviting.” Ronnie is able to capture every nuance of color as it illuminates the surface because he is there in person. “I paint things the way they look when I am actually there. If I can see it, it’s in the painting.”

Ronnie has always been amazed by the miracle of nature, especially the pristine wilderness and is passionate about painting the natural wonders of America and the wildlife we wish to protect. “I love it all -the big things, the little things, the wild animals- all of it has my attention.”
