ALISON ORCHARD


Feature painting

"Lockdown Vibe" was painted at my temporary home studio during the early weeks of the Covid pandemic. Using canvas stretched across an old board and texture created wth eggshell and paper collage, this dynamic painting reflects the emotional chaos of the time. I was taking daily woodland walks, discovering new paths and my only view from the studio window was the brilliant sunshine reflected on windows and across the lawn. It has that joy of summer and the enforced 'pause' we had to take, with an edge of energetic craziness.  It looks fabulous on its stretcher and in it's new frame. Currently on display in the gallery at Applegarth Farm.
