Original Painting by John Dyer. Fields of Colour, Bonnieux, Provence.
John Dyer has captured a sumptuous palette of Provençal colours in the painting of the hilltop village of Bonnieux in Provence. A rich purple sky complements the yellow sunflower field and the lines of purple lavender that are ready for picking. Pencil pines create strong vertices and the artist has used the light to great effect to emphasise the brilliance of the flowers and colour combinations.
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.
