John Dyer Painting. Spring Fun at Readymoney Cove, Fowey
A day at the beach at Readymoney cove at Fowey is the subject for this John Dyer painting. Wild Cornish flowers grow from the cliff side and bathers enjoy the aqua green sea. Seals and seagulls animate the painting and fresh spring-like colours create a real sense of the warm spring sunshine. A delightful painting of this special part of the Cornish coast.
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.
