John Dyer Painting. Spring Daffodils, Mount’s Bay.
This uplifting spring painting of the daffodil fields surrounding Mount's in Cornwall, by artist John Dyer, is full or narrative and colour. A family walk through the beautiful flowers towards the spectacular view of St Michael's Mount and the blue sea beyond. Fishing boats fill the bay and Cornish gulls swoop through the sky. A wonderful painting of Cornwall at its best.
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.
