Original Painting by John Dyer. Relaxing by the River, Helford.
A really beautiful John Dyer painting of the Helford river in Cornwall. The artist has featured the boat house & a high tide on the river. The sky is a wonderful mix of oranges and the water lime greens, yellows and turquoise. A family play on the beach while small boats make their way along the river. Daisies, palm trees, seagulls & wonderful tall pines complete this Cornish riverside scene.
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.
