The island of Tresco, in the Isles of Scilly, is one of artist John Dyer's favourite locations to explore in paint. This delightful new painting captures the joy of a holiday on the island with white sand, wild sub-tropical flowers, seagulls, puffins and a family enjoying cycling, swimming and picnicking under a perfect blue Cornish 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.
