John Dyer Painting. A Penan Tribe Welcome, Long Iman, Mulu, Borneo
"The amazing longhouse at the Penan tribal village of Long Iman in Mulu, Borneo was a real treat to visit and paint. Friendly members of the Penan tribe great us at the water's edge as our longboat finally arrives after an eventful journey upriver. The rainforest towers behind the village on the hillside and tropical butterflies fly through 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.
