John Dyer Painting. Bright Summer Flowers, Mousehole
This major John Dyer painting captures the vibrancy and colour of life in Mousehole harbour in Cornwall in the artist's unique way. Wonderful, huge and colourful flowers fill the foreground with the artist's brush strokes capture energy and texture. Seagulls swoop across the Cornish blue sky and fishing boats and swimmers float in the harbour. Brilliant fun and full of energy and optimism.
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.
