Original Painting by John Dyer. Blue Skies and Blazing Stars, Banrock Station, Australia.
"What an amazing time I had in Australia painting for Banrock Station Wine in their wetlands and vineyards. This special painting features much of what makes this place so special. Sulphur-crested cockatoos swoop across the painting while pelicans gather in the wetlands below. Visitors relax with glasses of red shiraz wine and the Australian night sky dazzles. I loved painting in the outback."
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.
"The Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre is a wonderful place to relax and marvel at the vastness of the mallee woodlands, vineyards and wetlands and the wildlife that is returning here all set against blue skies and blazing stars, cheers!" Manager of Banrock Station Wine, Australia.

I was enraptured by this painting since I first saw it here in John’s online gallery, and I am amazed that it is even more spectacular in real life. As with John’s other paintings, the colours leap out and the scene itself is pure joy - the beauty and delight of the Australian landscape is perfectly captured. It is simply a pleasure to have in the house! Aside from being thrilled with this painting, I would also like to thank John and the Gallery for their attentiveness with delivery issues that were beyond their control during this pandemic. They did all they could to keep me assured until my painting was safely delivered. I can’t recommend John’s work (and customer service) more - thank you!
