About the artist Ron Waldeck.
Ron Waldeck, born in 1946, in the then Rhodesia. He is a self taught artist and started his career engraving artworks on brass sheet. He then switched to watercolour and gouache and his main concentration was on birds and wildlife, which he executed in great detail.
He has now progressed to producing a wide range of subject matter which includes realistic impressionism and palette knife in an impasto style. Close up work remains a favorite regardless of the subject matter. Bushman portraits to flowers, nudes to children playing on the beach, all bear the typical style of his close up preference. Obviously he has exhibited in many South African galleries and has also owned and run galleries in a number of towns and cities.
