Viewing and buying paintings of Cornwall

Viewing and buying paintings of Cornwall

If you're an enthusiast who loves paintings of Cornwall, you'll be happy to know that there are many great places to view them. In this blog post, we will provide a guide for buyers who are interested in purchasing paintings. We'll discuss some of the best places for buyers to view these works of art, as well as the benefits of buying paintings from a local artist. So if you're looking for a new addition to your home décor, be sure to read on.

Where to find Cornish paintings?

The best place to find art is at local art galleries. Not only do you have a chance to purchase beautiful artwork, but you're also supporting the local community. Local art galleries are a great way to support the arts and a fascinating way to shop.

Another great place to view a specific artist and to buy paintings is online. Many websites sell paintings created by local Cornish artists, so you can find the perfect artwork for your home. Buying online is a great way to shop from the comfort of your own home.

If you want to support local artists and get a one-of-a-kind original, consider commissioning a piece. Many are happy to take commissions, and this is a great way to get a painting that's specifically tailored to your needs. John Dyer and Joanne Short are both happy to consider commissions for customers and have taken on many commissions over the years, including commissions for public galleries. A personal commission by an artist is something to treasure for life.

So if you're looking for beautiful art featuring Cornwall and the sea, be sure to view local galleries, online websites, and maybe even consider a commission, you won't be disappointed with the results.

We would be happy to help you find the perfect framed painting for your home. As a buyer if your budget doesn't stretch to a painting or print the gallery also offers a wonderful selection of Cornish gifts inspired by Cornwall and the artwork we represent.

Cornish Artists

The John Dyer Gallery in the UK is proud to represent some of the most talented artists in Cornwall. Our collection of Cornwall art includes beautiful landscape and seascape paintings of Cornwall. We also have a wide variety of artist styles, so you're sure to find the perfect painting, gifts or prints for your home.

John Dyer's paintings are often characterised by their bright colours. If you're looking to buy original Cornish art that features the sea, his work is a good place to start. John Dyer is Cornwall's best-known artist and has been painting the landscape of Cornwall for over 30 years.

Another artist whose Cornwall art is in high demand is Joanne Short. Her work captures the rugged beauty of Cornwall's coastline in a way that is both realistic and emotive. Her work is colourist, and often features strong contrasts between light and dark tones and she uses the most amazing colour palette. If you're looking for a painting that captures the essence of Cornwall, a beach, a loved place or fishing village then be sure to check out the work of Joanne Short. You won't be disappointed!

If you're looking for something more traditional Cornwall art, then paintings by artist Ted Dyer are a good option. His work captures the lovely picturesque Cornish fishing villages and landscape of Cornwall with the most amazing use of light in a style that has been described as 'Cornish Impressionist'.

Authentic original work

When buyers purchase artwork from our gallery they are assured of two things: quality and authenticity. All of our artists use high-quality materials, so you can rest assured that you're getting a beautiful piece of Cornwall art of the highest quality. Plus, all of our artists are based in Cornwall, so you know that the painting is authentic and represents the county well. All of the work we sell on the gallery is available framed.

We have a wide variety of paintings available on our website, so be sure to take a look and select an artist you love.
