A Tour of Cornwall: Seaside Scenes a New Set of Seaside Prints by Ted Dyer

Cornwall is known for its dramatic coastline, with its rolling beaches and steep cliffs. In this new set of open edition prints by Ted Dyer, you can explore the seaside scenes of Cornwall in all their glory. From small sailing boats to children playing on the beach, these prints are a celebration of Cornwall's natural beauty. They are also a great way to bring a piece of Cornwall into your home! This amazing collection of Cornwall art prints is exclusive to The John Dyer Gallery.

New prints

We have just created a new collection of prints of the seaside by Cornish artist Ted Dyer. This collection makes Ted's work more accessible to a wider audience. If you are looking for a traditional yet contemporary image of Cornwall, then your search is over.

What is an open edition print?

An open edition print is a work of art that does not have a limited number of copies. They are not signed or numbered. The open editions from The John Dyer Gallery are all museum-quality and printed to the same standards and on the same archival paper as our limited edition prints.

Why are they popular?

Open edition prints are popular because they are more affordable than limited edition prints and they come in a wide range of sizes and many have framed options. This makes them a great option for people who want to own a piece of art, but may not have the budget for a limited edition print or want a larger print.

How are they different from limited edition prints?

Limited edition prints are works of art that are produced in a limited number of signed and numbered copies. This means that once the artist has reached the limit, no more numbered prints will be made. This makes them more exclusive and more costly than open edition prints.

Which one should you choose?

The type of print you choose depends on your budget and what you are looking for in a piece of art. If you want something that is more exclusive and that could increase in value over time, then a limited edition print is a good choice. If you are looking for a more affordable option or larger prints, then an open edition print is a good choice. In the case of Ted Dyer's work, there are only open edition prints available. They are, however, available either framed or unframed.

The New Collection

We have carefully chosen a selection of Ted's images that we feel best represent his work and have made them available as a collection of art prints.

Ted Dyer has spent the last 50 years or so exploring the coast of Cornwall: photographing early morning mist rising and evening light as the sun sets, light reflecting off the water and the brilliance of colour in the natural environment, which in turn he has developed into exquisite paintings back in his studio.

He has studied Cornish wildflowers which grow on headlands and in the hedgerows, sunlight reflecting and sparkling off the sea, waves crashing against rugged cliffs and sailing boats on the water.
