Original Painting by John Dyer. Cycling through the Lavender, Gordes, Provence.
John Dyer loves to paint in the landscape of Provence & this enchanting canvas captures in many ways the artist's own experience of France. The hilltop village of Gordes covers the hill in the background with terracotta and pink brush marks. These are punctuated with fresh greens as the pencil pines cut across the layers. Sunflowers and lavender fields fill the painting and two cyclists ride by.
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.
