John Dyer Painting. Yawanawá Amazon Rainforest Tree House
"Painted from an extraordinary rainforest treehouse in the Yawanawá village of Mutum. My painting depicts the magical moment a family of black-faced monkeys descended from the canopy. Butterflies, toucans, chickens and members of the tribe watch as the monkeys go to great the great explorer - Robin Hanbury-Tenison."
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.
