Lyme Regis Art Society welcomed a self-proclaimed ‘painter of everything’ to its latest meeting.

Gill Barron's subjects have included gypsy wagons, inn signs, huge murals, coaches and canal boats.

For her Lyme demonstration, she worked on a square birch-ply board primed with several coats of blackboard paint using special signwriting brushes.

The sign was called The Hop Inn so she completed a small section of hop decoration copied using tracedown paper and then drew in the letters before adding colour to them.

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

Its next demonstration called 'For the love of Pastel' will be given by Favell Bevan-Arti on Tuesday, March 3. Visitors and new members are always welcome to attend. For further details about the society visit its website at:
