John Dyer Painting. Snowy Sausage Dog Walkies St Michael's Mount
Snow is transformative for the landscape, but especially exciting on the coast where the colours and movements of the water interact with the dramatic changes. A delightful composition and use of colour feature alongside the narrative of walking a sausage dog along a snowy beach. Wonderful loose brush strokes describe the falling snow as it settles across the scene.
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.
