Alison Orchard Art

Alison paints direct from the landscape, both at home and along the Dorset to Cornwall coastline, using these initial experiences to inspire the large gestural paintings created in her studio. Her curiosity with layered surfaces and marks have led her to explore various media, painting with oil or acrylics and more recently encaustic wax, often combined with metal filings, marble dust and coloured charcoal.
