Rick Stein's Cornwall Series 2 with Artist Sue Read
I had the best day filming at Porthcothan with Rick Stein and the production team for Rick Steins Cornwall Series 2. It was a beautiful day and I made a cracking painting which I went on to finish in the studio. It wasn’t easy talking to camera and painting, but the team put me at ease and we had a great conversation. The highlight though had to be going for a quick dip with Rick in the sea. It was chilly, but appeared tropical. The response to the programme was just phenomenal and I have met the loveliest of new followers and collectors through orders or visits to the studio.
Sue featured with Rick Stein’s Cornwall Series 2 Episode 5 Friday 7th January BBC2 . You can watch the programme on Iplayer here.
Prints of ‘Porthcothan Blues’ are available. Further info is below. The original is special to me and on my own wall for now.
Just hearing the sound of the sea Mordros was enough for me to paint instinctively using a myriad of blues, from cerulean, to cobalt and indigo and more, hence the painting title.
Just paint and we will chat said the director. Easier said than done, but I loved the experience and am delighted with the finished painting.
Limited edition paper and canvas prints are available. The original is part of a collection of work based around Mordros to be released in the Spring as a show.
