John Dyer QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And he that will this health deny, down among the dead men let him lie.
Quotation of John Dyer
Digital media has destroyed much of the magic and mystery of the medium.
Quotation of John Dyer
During the winter when the weather is too poor to work outside, I do use drawings and photographs, but I change my work so it is not just a time and place study.
Quotation of John Dyer
Ever charming, ever new, when will the landscape tire the view?
Quotation of John Dyer
I am not so keen on modern yachts because they are predominantly white. I am lucky to live in Falmouth because of the variety of boats on the water.
Quotation of John Dyer
I apply paint directly from the tube and with my fingers.
Quotation of John Dyer
I choose to live in Falmouth because I like the town, its harbour and all of the activity associated with it; boats, tugs, ferry trips, seagulls, people, buildings.
Quotation of John Dyer
I decided to become a painter when my first four paintings where all published and attracted a great deal of interest. I exhibited one of them and it was sold.
Quotation of John Dyer
I enjoy building up the paint, breaking it down again, layering it, painting over it.
Quotation of John Dyer
I have been surrounded by artists and paintings throughout my life. My father Ted Dyer is an artist, and from a very early age I have spent time painting and drawing.
Quotation of John Dyer
I have improved the way in which I paint. The colours are cleaner and there is more energy in the brush work.
Quotation of John Dyer
I have lived in Cornwall from the age of 4, so I have always been aware of the artistic heritage that the county has. I feel very proud to be able to connect to this.
Quotation of John Dyer
I love the sea's sounds and the way it reflects the sky. The colours that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable. This, combined with the colour of the water over white sand, surprises me every time.
Quotation of John Dyer
I paint what I see, not what a camera would see.
Quotation of John Dyer
I realised that if I did what I wanted to do, it would work.
Quotation of John Dyer
I really enjoy squeezing out a big lump of paint directly onto the canvas and leaving it; fresh, immediate and sometimes shocking.
Quotation of John Dyer
I still take photographs for my own use, personal studies. I do not feel that I can fully express my views through the medium and this is why I have moved towards painting.
Quotation of John Dyer
I studied for my degree in London and consequently ended up spending five years away from Cornwall. I deliberately moved away from the coast to experience a different way of life.
Quotation of John Dyer
I try to complete the painting by the end of the day, and include elements that I observe throughout the day, dogs, birds, people, fishermen.
Quotation of John Dyer
I use a wide selection of colours. It is impossible to produce work like mine using only the primary colours as they only mix a certain range of colour.
Quotation of John Dyer
I use about 20 different colours to retain the luminance in my work.
Quotation of John Dyer
I used to own a dingy and can still sail one if pushed, but I like the pleasure boats.
Quotation of John Dyer
I used to spend most of my free time on the beach playing in the rock pools, swimming, flying kites, and occasionally horse riding.
Quotation of John Dyer
I want to paint big, bright, optimistic pictures of the place I love.
Quotation of John Dyer
I was told I was talented when I applied to Falmouth School of Art and that I should consider skipping the course and proceeding directly to degree level.

In some parts of the world there is very little tidal movement.
Quotation of John Dyer
It's a terrible thing wishing that it can be someone else's tragedy.
Quotation of John Dyer
My father is a well known artist, Ted Dyer, who has been painting for many years. Our work is very different, but growing up surrounded by paintings, paints, easels and art books does have an effect.
Quotation of John Dyer
My great love is my home county of Cornwall, I love to sit and watch people enjoying themselves on the beaches and in the harbour towns of Cornwall.
Quotation of John Dyer
My optimism for life carried through my work.
Quotation of John Dyer
My work all stems from my enjoyment of the medium. I also have a passion for colour, strong colours, clashing colours, all colours.
Quotation of John Dyer
Often I question some of the colour in my work, but if you look it is all there.
Quotation of John Dyer
On my return to Cornwall I discovered that I was living in a tropical paradise. For now I am content to explore my own home and our nearest neighbour France.
Quotation of John Dyer
Painting is really good fun, I have always enjoyed it. As long as I paint what I want with the freedom that I enjoy, I never tire.
Quotation of John Dyer
Photography is a fantastic medium and I would still use it for certain subjects.
Quotation of John Dyer
St Michaels Mount is a favourite place of mine; people will walk across to the Mount all day and assume they will be able to walk home. The spectacle of hundreds of people realising that the path they walked over on is disappearing under several feet of water is very amusing.
Quotation of John Dyer
The lifestyle that an artist can have, the freedom to wander in the landscape with no real pressure or deadlines, was a very attractive one.
Quotation of John Dyer
The majority of my work is from life. I spend most fine days from May to October painting outside.
Quotation of John Dyer
The most amazing thing to me about the sea is the tide. A harbour like St. Ives is totally transformed in a very short space of time by the arrival or departure of the sea.
Quotation of John Dyer
The paintings by Van Gough and Chagall had a big influence on me.
Quotation of John Dyer
While I was at college studying design I decided to paint. I was also greatly inspired by the colours that I had seen on my travels in the Brazilian Rain forest.
