Artist Completes 64 Paintings on Time for New P&O Cruise Liner Britannia


Laura Rich was commissioned with creating a mammoth 64 landscape paintings in June of this year. The paintings, set to appear on brand new P&O cruise ship, Brittania, which is launching in the spring, were completed by her deadline of the end of October. This meant Laura had to paint nearly one a day. This is possibly her biggest commission to date and Laura felt very relieved when she finally handed over her paintings to local framer, Paul Wilton.

She said: “I feel relieved to have finished on time. I had doubts throughout the process that I would ever complete the task but I have been very lucky to have a great deal of support from my family and friends and from the local community. My children have been a great cheer-leading squad.”

The mother of three is now planning to open her own studio, along with artist Andrew Walworth and potter Ed Duckworth on 6 December. She is also now coordinating the 2015 Wyle Valley Art Trail.
