Art Blog from Cornwall

In this blog post, we will take a look at the work of three landscape painters, John DyerJoanne Short and Ted Dyer, who have all captured the beauty of the landscape in their paintings. Each artist has a unique style, but they all share a love for capturing the essence of Cornwall in their work. We will also discuss the inspiration behind these beautiful works of art.

Both the UK and France are a wonder of the natural world and a landscape painter's dream, and both have played a big part in these three artists paintings. With its rugged coastline, sheltered coves and stunning gardens, Cornwall provides plenty of inspiration for artists, as does France, with its changing light and colourful landscape. 

When you think of French landscape paintings, what comes to mind? Perhaps posters of the Eiffel Tower in Paris or picturesque villages nestled in the countryside. While these are certainly iconic images of France, they don't tell the whole story. There is a side of France that is just as beautiful. Southern France is home to artists who paint scenes of rolling hills blanketed in lavender, sun-drenched vineyards, and ancient olive groves. If you're looking for a taste of Provence without leaving your home, take a look at some of the paintings by artists John Dyer and Joanne Short, painted while on several trips to Provence and the surrounding area, including during their honeymoon. In this blog artist Joanne Short talks about her experience of painting in the South of France.
