'Waving at the Fishermen, Mevagissey', 12 x 10 inches acrylic on canvas. Cornwall Art Gallery Painting by John Dyer.

This painting of Cornwall is by John Dyer and captures a glimpse of the fishing village of Mevagissey with its colourful houses that cling to the steep sided hillside overlooking the harbour. A fishing boat is framed by two Cornish palm trees. A seal and seagulls look on as the fishermen on the boat wave to the people on the quay side. Lime greens perfectly set of the rusty red of the Cornish house in the painting and the brilliant blue sea sparkles in the sun. A wonderful painting that creates a lifelong window into Cornwall and the atmosphere of Mevagissey harbour.
