'Tropical View to Trefusis, Falmouth'. 18 x 24 inches, acrylic on canvas. Cornwall Art Gallery Painting by John Dyer.

Artist John Dyer has perfectly captured the view to Flushing and Trefusis beach from the top of the High Street in Falmouth in this glorious work of art. The artist has taken the view through the sub-tropical plants that love to grow in Cornwall's mild climate, with agave cactus, blue giant echiums and towering palm trees all featuring and creating great energy and form. A couple walk their sausage dog into town creating a narrative as seagulls and blackbirds look on. A couple of bikes ride up from Falmouth onto the crest of the hill and people gather to watch the boats and yachts pass by. A wonderful painting that captures so much about Falmouth and epitomises this celebrated artist's work.
