Painting by John Dyer. Echium Blue, Pentle Bay, Tresco
The beautiful sweep of the sand at Pentle Bay on Tresco and the wild echiums growing in the sand dunes have combined to create a really spectacular painting by British artist John Dyer. Puffins fly overhead and swim in the sea. Seals and swimmers enjoy the crystal clear blue water and sailing boats drift across the bay. A stunning large painting from this acclaimed artist.
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.
