Original Painting by John Dyer. Palm Beach at Eden.
John Dyer is the Eden Project's artist in residence. This painting was painted by John in the rainforest biome beside a group of palm trees that can be used for making sealing wax. Seed pods on the sandy floor give a real beach & island feel to this environmental painting. We can see a group of people wandering through the rainforest waving excitedly as butterflies & finches fly past the biome.
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.
