A THREE-day exhibition by the students of a Royal painter is on display at Matthews Hall in Topsham.

The exhibition is showcasing a range of works by the local students of Lymsptone based artist Wilf Plowman.

The 74 paintings mould to people's tastes with everything from pastels to oils and portraits, and with a couple of Mr Plowman's own paintings of Spanish idylls and royal life on display.

The former Topsham resident said: "It is very nice to see the paintings of my students; they were reasonably priced and got a good response."

Mr Plowman spent many years working as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director before moving down to Topsham to concentrate on his paintings.

Much of his work has been bought by Prince Phillip and Prince Charles.

The exhibition started Friday, July 11 and will end Sunday, July 13, and is open from 9am to 8pm Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
