The beautiful beach and bay at Swanpool, on the south coast of Cornwall, have inspired this new John Dyer painting. Bluebells, swimmers and fishing boats fill the bay. The beach of Swanpool sweeps around towards the headland and the lines of beach huts. Seagulls fly across the Cornish blue sky and a blackbird perches on the rocks looking for crumbs.
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
