Ron Morley, born in London 1938, painter in oil and occasionally watercolour.
Before his retirement in 2005 he worked freelance as a magazine and newspaper designer, moving around Fleet Street, London, in the cut and thrust of tight deadlines and graveyard shifts.
He now lives in Benaojan, Andalucía, and with a complete change of lifestyle, has time to ponder and tentatively paint.
His subject matter is close at hand and all engulfing, and for the moment it is enough to paint simple village scenes, explore the narrow streets, relish the blue skys and delve into the deep shadows.
He loves the medium of oil, working with its richness and depth gives him huge satisfaction and a freedom he never knew in the black and white rigidity of the British press.
More of Ron’s work can be seen at the Hotel Molino del Santo, Benaoján Estación.
