John Dyer Painting. Roussillon Romance, Provence, France
Artist John Dyer has painted this stunning canvas of the hilltop village of Roussillon in Provence and it's a visual treat with warm earth colours and lavender combining into a captivating painting of this special part of France. The view is through lavender flowers towards the village and in the midground, a couple embraces, love is in the air.
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.
