John Dyer Painting. Running to the Beach, Portscatho
The fishing village of Portscatho, on the Roseland peninsula on the South Coast of Cornwall, has been captured by artist John Dyer in this stunning new piece. The foreground is full of Cornish wildflowers and our view is immediately taken by the figures running excitedly down the path towards the beach at Portscatho. The fishing village of Portscatho is set strikingly against the Cornish blue sky.
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.
