Celebration by John D. Dronsfield was commissioned to commemorate the Vernon
Building Society’s 75th Anniversary in July 1999.
John paints, writes
and illustrates using watercolour, gouache and acrylic.
John says, “Watercolour
allows me to float and be instant and ethereal; acrylic, I tend to use for
larger works. Gouache and inks are colour weaponry...I use these to zing with
and exploit the use of colour as a powerful agent, to excite, motivate and
infiltrate the mind...to fill it with fun. It is emotional magic, a world full
of wonderment. Each picture starts with a story or an idea, to communicate on a
number of different levels to reach a wider audience, so it is chameleonic in
