John Dyer Painting. Waiting for the Catch, St Ives
A delightful new painting from Cornish artist John Dyer of a flock of seagulls following a fishing boat as it returns to St Ives in Cornwall. A black and white cat watches from the foreground of the painting, perhaps eagerly anticipating a tasty treat later in the day. Blue echiums and Cornish daisies fill the foreground & our view is out across the iridescent blue harbour to the town of St Ives.
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.
