Sue Read Cornwall Seascapes
Lymnores a’n mor ha’n arvoyow ( Cornish for painter of the sea and coast)
Cornwall Seascapes and coastal paintings created by professional Cornish artist, Sue Read, in Bude, North Cornwall.
My seascapes and coastal paintings of Cornwall are full of moving skies and dramatic seas veiled with the layering of the unique Cornish light.
There is a sense of timelessness in the pull of the tides. The coast is varied and each beach a different palette of colour. They have been shaped by the weather and waves of the North Cornish coast over the centuries.
I am happiest in the water and this last year I have been in the sea all year round. It’s a place to imagine new works and really connect with nature, to be conscious of what is precious in my life. The ideas and memories become part of the conversation I have with paint back in the studio.
Lying just outside of Bude on the coast of North Cornwall, I work from a beautiful barn studio on a farm that has been in my family since the early 1900’s .
