John Dyer Painting. Cornish Christmas, St Michael's Mount
A snow flurry drifts across the deep blue star studded night sky at St Michael's Mount in this exquisite nocturne snow scene painting by Cornish artist John Dyer. The colourful coats on the people and bobbing boats in the bay combine with the lights on the Christmas Tree to illuminate the scene. Pure magic from cornwall's best loved artist.
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.
