John Dyer lives and paints on the seafront in Falmouth and is inspired by all the colour and activity that he sees. A ferry boat full of excited people crosses the bay. Swimmers enjoy the brilliant blue sea and the tropical palms create a real feel of the Mediterranean. The colours of the coast and the exciting shapes of the tropical plants in Cornwall inform much of John's work.
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.
