Lyme artists learn about forms and colours

Simon Bramble demonstrates his unique style of painting
An unusual demonstration held Lyme Regis Art Society members enthralled.
Simon Bramble showed them his unique style of painting, using only four colours, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, cerulean and ultramarine.
His paintings are about forms and colours rather than realism and he combines buildings with the Devonshire countryside in complimentary designs.
He usually works on several oils paintings together and paints around the sides of his cotton canvases but, with only limited time available, he used quick drying acrylics to recreate a depiction of St Swithens Church in Woodbury - a village on the way to Exeter.
Simon will be running a workshop in The Lyme Regis Football Club from 10am to 1pm on Tuesday November 27.
Lyme Regis Art Society meets on alternate Tuesdays in The Woodmead Halls from 2pm to 4pm until the end of March. Visitors and new members are always welcome. For further details, contact Sheila Stratton on 01297 445464 or go to www.lymeregisartssociety.org.uk
