John Dyer Painting. Jumping in the Sunflowers, Ménerbes, Provence
The sheer fun and colour of exploring the amazing landscape of Provence is captured brilliantly in this delightful new canvas by artist John Dyer. The Provençal village of Ménerbes of 'A Year in Provence' fame can be seen in the background. The painting is full of summer energy and sunflowers.
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.
