A PROFESSIONAL 'painter of the sea' has put on an exhibition on the outskirts of Bridport.

Kim Pragnell's 'Saltwater Series Two' is taking place at the Sou’-Sou’-West Arts Gallery on the Symondsbury Estate.

The exhibition opened on Saturday, June 5 and will run until Sunday, June 20.

Mr Pragnell has spent a considerable time out at sea, both in the Royal Navy and on sailing yachts around the south coast.

He draws with paint to create a collection of shapes and dynamics, with light playing a huge part in the painting of the sea.

Mr Pragnell exhibits in galleries in the like of Devon, Cornwall, Dorchester and Bath, and will be showing in Shaftesbury in October.

The Saltwater Series to exhibit is open daily from 10.30am until 4.30pm.
