John Dyer Painting. Shooting Stars and Skinny Dippers, St Michael's Mount.
This fun filled canvas from Cornwall's favourite artist, John Dyer, is full of narrative, colour and light. Shooting stars zoom across the star studded Milky Way sky illuminating the amazing scene of people wadding off the island, splashing skinny dippers, seals and sailing boats. The people on the beach are enjoying the balmy warm evening air and a scotty dog and sausage dog explore the beach.
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.
