'Painting on the Cliffs, Gwithian.' 18 x 18 inches, acrylic on canvas. Cornwall Art Gallery Painting by John Dyer.

This delightful John Dyer original painting captures artist Joanne Short painting on the cliffs at Gwithian in Cornwall. The painting was painted en plein air on the cliffs at Gwithian, with the view looking towards Godrevy and the lighthouse. The painting is full of textures with the artist's brush stokes describing the wild plants, grasses and thistles on the headland. The sea has a beautiful graduated colour from deep blue to aqua and the Cornish surf is captured with free and dynamic mark making. A beautiful palette of colours combine to create a magical painting of the Cornish coast that captures a specific and special moment in time.
