John Dyer is one of Cornwall’s best-loved artists, whose colourful
“This is a stunning book, beautiful rich colour reproductions of hundreds of paintings and produced on thick silk paper. It is a premium quality production. Full colour glossy hardback cover. You will be delighted with this book and it would make an incredible gift for anyone who loves the art of John Dyer, Cornwall, colour or paintings of the world.”
"I have had the privilege of having John paint my garden, and my house, and enjoyed the way the mood of his paintings changes subtly to reflect their location – both in the UK and overseas – from the beaches of Cornwall to the depths of the rainforest. Atmosphere is everything in a John Dyer painting, and this is a fitting celebration of fifty years spent admiring the world around him, much of it spent depicting that world in paint. His style is like that of no other artist, but then neither is his character."

Last chance to paint
"Putting together this book Painting the Colours of the World has been a joint effort in the best sense. It includes contributions from his wife Joanne and daughters Martha-Lilly and Wilamena, as well as whole-hearted tributes from many people who have generously shared their thoughts and memories for the book, and lent their treasured paintings to the exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery with which it coincides.

I received my book today and I'm absolutely thrilled with it. The vibrancy, subjects & information are outstanding.
I was drawn to John's art because of the stunning colours he uses. We visited the UK in summer in 2018. Unfortunately we couldn't organise a visit to the gallery and living in Melbourne, Australia, I never thought I'd be able to obtain any of John's work. To own an entire book full of John's masterpieces is truly an honour.
The highlight of visiting in summer was the beauty of colours throughout the English countryside and now I have that beauty of my own through John's book. Thank you. Warmest wishes, Sue
A Christmas treat
This is a Christmas present, so have just had a brief look. The book is full of beautiful, colourful paintings. Sumptuous is the word that comes to mind. This book will undoubtedly brighten winter days. Thank you John for your amazing, joyful creativity!
A book to make you happy...
The artwork is presented in an intelligent and informative format. The text is engaging and the photograhy adds to the narrative throughout the book. The overall impression is of happiness and joy. The quality of the printing is very high for the cost of the book. Highly recommended.
The photographs of Johns paintings are beautiful, colourful and as with all his artwork , a joy to look at.
I can highly recommend this latest book . I paid a little extra for JDs signature to be in the book. Well worth it.
I love his work and own a couple of originals by him which I’m very proud to own as I am this book.
A vibrant book that asks to be opened
The colours draw you into the joyful artwork and fascinating background behind each piece. This book has attracted a lot of attention in my living room!
