Limited Edition Print. Returning to Shore, Helford. By Ted Dyer
A wonderful print of the Helford river by one of Cornwall's most outstanding seascape painters. Ted Dyer has captured the brilliant blue sea and summer sunshine. Small Cornish boats are moored on the river and a yacht sails out to the deeper water. Our view is from over a Cornish hedgerow, a glimpse of the view from the garden below. A classic and timeless piece of Cornwall.
This great print of Helford is full of colour and movement. It is of a late summer day with a full tide and two fishermen are returning to shore in their small motor boat having been out to sea fishing for the day in their larger fishing vessel. The foreground has a mixture of colourful foliage with red berries and leaves that are tinged with yellow and red making a contrast against the blue sea and green foliage of the trees. There is a small group of houses catching the sunlight in the distance and a sailing boat with creamy white sails taking the opportunity of a late afternoon sail before returning home at the end of a perfect day.
