The beach at Old Grimsby on the island of Tresco is the subject for this delightful new John Dyer painting. The glistening white sand of the island, combined with the sea and sky blues creates a wonderfully relaxing view. A family play on the beach and swimmers enjoy the refreshing sea, Blue echiums and palms frame the view and sailing boats and seagulls complete this jewel like piece.
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.
