John Dyer Painting. A Perfect Spring Day, St Michael's Mount, Cornwall
The excitement of catching the first ferry of the day to St Michael's Mount has been painted in this canvas by John Dyer. Daffodils create a burst of colour and complement the deep blue sea perfectly. The calm blue sea is full of sailing boats and small ferry boats and a family waits on the slipway as the tide laps at their feet. A perfect glimpse of Cornwall.
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.
