Visiitng demonstrator Paul Dolmon tells members to do what suits them

“Tear up the rule book-paint in whatever way suits you!”- that was the welcome advice to Lyme Regis Art Society

from visiting demonstrator, Paul Dolmon, as he laid a band of green water-based acrylic paint over a layer of oil paint.

Paul is a mainly self-taught artist whose work has attracted a lot of attention after being posted on Facebook and will soon have 14 new paintings of the Florida Everglades in an art gallery there and also has work exhibited in South Africa.

Lyme Regis Art Society meets on alternate Tuesdays in The Woodmead Halls from 2pm to 4pm until the end of March.

An extra meeting on Tuesday February 13 will feature a talk by Pamela Simpson, “Exploring themes of Landscape and Still Life”.

There will be a watercolour demonstration entitled “Rocky Coastlines”, by David Webb on Tuesday, February 20. Visitors and new members are always welcome.

Anyone requiring further details about the society and its schedule of meetings and demonstrations should contact Sheila Stratton on 01297 445464 or visit the society’s website at
