The incoming tide at St Ives harbour creates a perfect bathing pool for splashing about amongst the fishing boats and Cornish seals. Palm trees and sub-tropical plants add to the Caribbean feel that Cornish artist John Dyer has captured in this new canvas. Seagulls soar overhead and a scotty dog looks on as people Chet ready behind their windbreaks. Wonderful fun.
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.
