The beautiful seaside town of Fowey in Cornwall is the backdrop to this romantic new painting by artist John Dyer. Sailing boats and Fowey ferries animate the river with colour and narrative. Seagulls, seals and swimmers join in the fun and in the foreground we find the two lovers holding hands as they relax in the cool grass surrounded by sub-tropical plants. A fantastic painting of Fowey & life.
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.
