Denise Orchard

ARTIST’S STATEMENT - "I paint any subject that attracts my interest, including landscapes, trees, people and still life, using oils, water colour or pastel. My recent work has mainly been boats, beachscapes and seascapes in oil, usually involving dramatic skies. I aim to capture the atmosphere, light, sense of space and the varying moods of the beautiful and inspiring Devon and Cornwall coast.”
