Art Blog from Cornwall

Looking at paintings of a beach scene can transport you to a different place. You can feel the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin, and the breeze in your hair. These paintings are not just beautiful to look at; they transport us to the place of holiday memories and time spent having fun. In this blog post, we will take a look at several famous historic beach paintings and see how they have influenced our work here at The John Dyer Gallery.
There is something about the French countryside that inspires artists to capture its beauty on canvas. Whether it is the rolling hills of Provence, the rocky coastline of Brittany, or the bustling streets of Paris, there is a unique magic in the air that cannot be found anywhere else. In this blog post, we will take a look at some of the paintings and prints created by our gallery artists John DyerJoanne Short and Ted Dyer over the years. We will also explore why these landscapes have been such an inspiration for them.
If you're looking for a little bit of France to take home with you, look no further than the latest collection of paintings by John Dyer. This talented artist has just released a new set of paintings, all of which were created during the summer of 2022 in the South of France, Monaco and Italy. The paintings capture the beauty and charm of this region, with its vibrant colours and charming towns. Whether you're admiring the view from Menton or Nice in France, or taking in the sights of Monaco or Rocchetta Nervina in Italy, each painting is sure to transport you to this enchanting corner of the world. In this blog John's wife, artist Joanne Short, talks about the family's latest trip to the South of France and John's latest collection of paintings.
