John Dyer Painting. Sparkling Stars, Mousehole Harbour.
The Cornish fishing village of Mousehole is a subject that artist John Dyer captures with his lively brush strokes & colourful narrative in the most uplifting way. This stunning painting features an incoming tide & a family playing on the beach. The colourful boats follow the curve of the harbour & a seal looks for fish from the returning fisherman. The Scillonian sails past under the stars.
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.
