John Dyer Painting. Summer Surfers, Holywell Bay, Cornwall
The famous beach of Holywell Bay in Cornwall is the subject of this new John Dyer painting. Looking through the wild grasses on the sand dunes towards the crashing waves the painting depicts a colourful day out enjoying the beach and riding the waves. The distinctive Gull Rocks provide the backdrop to the narrative and fun of the surfers, swimmers and seagulls.
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.
