All the colour, atmosphere and narrative of the harbour in Newquay in Cornwall has been captured on this new canvas by Cornish artist John Dyer. Brightly coloured boats bob in the harbour and seagulls soar across the sky. Families enjoy the warm sand and set up deck chairs and windbreaks for a fabulous Cornish day out. Fantastic fun and a wonderful image of Cornwall.
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.

A wonderful painting which brightens our home
A wonderful painting which brightens our home. It arrived packaged so well an elephant could have stood on it and it would still have been safe! We have moved things around in our home to give it the pride of place it deserves. Already admired by friends (socially distanced of course!)..there may be some new fans! The colours really pop out from the frame and there is so much detail you don't notice everything at first glance. Our second purchase from this gallery and by John Dyer. I expect it wont be our last! Thankyou.
