John Dyer Painting. Caribbean Beach Life, Costa Rica
The wild Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is captured in this original painting by John Dyer. Painted on the beach in Costa Rica. The crashing surf and blue sea contrasts with the dark volcanic sand. Fallen trees provide habitat for crabs. Sunbathers and dogs create a great element of storytelling. Vultures fly across the tropical blue sky. Fabulous.
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.
