John Dyer Painting. Walking to Carn Brea, Cornwall.
The incredible history and landscape around Can Brea in central Cornwall has inspired this delightful new painting by artist John Dyer. The painting features wild Cornish flowers, medieval field patterns, tin mines and wildlife. Inspired by a walk the artist took across this wild heritage landscape the painting captures so much of what people identify as truly Cornish. Stunning.
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.
