The beautiful clear aqua green blue water of St Ives harbour entices us, and the swimmers in the painting, in for a cool dip. Seals join in the fun and a fisherman gently navigates his boat back to shore. This beautiful John Dyer painting captures so much of what makes St Ives a special holiday and home location for so many.
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.
