Topless swimmers skinny dip in the Cornish blue sea in the warm spring sunshine of Cornwall. Gorgeous bluebells create a wonderful foreground for this fun John Dyer painting that is full of narrative, optimism and the shear joy of life. Godrevy lighthouse creates the backdrop and a puffin and seal make an appearance to complete this gem of a painting.
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.
