Sea, sun and sand, all captured in this delightful John Dyer painting of St Ives in Cornwall. The artist has combined the view of the harbour with the distant view of Godrevy Lighthouse and Gwithian Sands. Boats are pulled up onto the yellow sand and sleepy seals bask in the warm summer sunshine. Beautiful.
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.
