ALISON ORCHARD

Contemporary British Artist based on Surrey / Hampshire border


Thanks for dropping by.  I paint most days from my studio at Applegarth Farm in Hampshire and I love chatting to visitors who drop by. I am lucky to live and work in the beautiful Surrey & Hampshire countryside but I am most inspired when I am looking out to sea, painting and sketching at the coast.

Enjoy browsing the gallery & shop in the search for your dream painting; If you've never bought original art before, have a look at "How to find the perfect painting". If you are looking for bespoke artwork to fit your interior aesthetic check out "How to commission a painting". Buying art is such an exciting process - enjoy the experience!

Feature Painting

"On The Rocks" is a big feature painting that really packs a punch, measuring 122 x 122cm on deep canvas. This is based on a stretch of rocks off Baggy Point, Near Croyde, on the North Devon coast. Currently on display in my Gallery and available for free UK delivery.

"Sitting painting and sketching just off the coastpath, with the waves continuing to crash across the  rockface, I was taken by the calmness of the distant horizon, soft pinks pushing out into the sky. The colours and textures in the rocky surface of this painting have to be seen."
