John Dyer Painting. A Wave of Summer Colour, Gyllyngvase Beach, Falmouth
A major painting by artist John Dyer of the stunning Queen Mary gardens and Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth. Inspired by walking his sausage dog around the gardens John wanted to capture the abundant colours and textures of the fabulous planting and summer flowers. Thickly applied paint and energetic brush work combine to create one of the most dynamic John Dyer paintings in recent years.
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.
