This stunning painting by John Dyer has an amazing use of paint and colour, capturing the late afternoon sun at Holywell Bay in Cornwall. Sunshine floods the painting, glinting on the waves and illuminating the sand and wild grasses. Surfers catch the evening waves on the high tide and a couple sit in the warm dunes enjoying their perfect summer day in Cornwall.
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.
