John Dyer Painting. Love Story, Godrevy Lighthouse
The lighthouse at Godrevy in Cornwall has long been an inspiration for artists and is a favourite subject for artist John Dyer. In this new naive romantic seaside painting by the artist a couple can be seen embracing or dancing on the cliffs surrounded by wild sea pinks and daisies. Looking beyond the cliffs the artist has painted two seals, swimmers and Cornish fishing boats. Beautiful.
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.
