John Dyer Painting. A Day on the Roseland, St Anthony's Lighthouse
The Cornish coastline is extraordinarily beautiful and this John Dyer painting captures the simple pleasure of sitting on the cliffs taking in the Cornish blue sky, sea and fresh air on the Roseland Peninsular. The view is looking towards St Anthony lighthouse from the cliff edge with daisies and wild grasses. Classic boats sail in the bay and seagulls fly through the sky.
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.
