John Dyer Painting. Prickly Heat on the Prom, Falmouth
A fabulously fun John Dyer painting featuring topless bathers, fishing boats and prickly plants. The artist's use of colour and brush strokes combine to create an energetic painting capturing the essence of a dip in the clear blue sea 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.
