Sarah Orchard - New Forest Artist
Art has always been an integral part of my life.
At the age of fifty I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/D in Fine Art.
My love of watercolour has been constant with their wonderful luminosity and transparency; the more I work with them the more I am addicted!
My love of pastels, with tones, movement, colour and people capturing an atmospheric feel within my work is linked into my use of oils.

Rubens has always inspired me with his fluid fleshy people; Degas and Lautrec, I love with their fabulous ability for simplicity, giving their work such vitality!
I feel that I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall
unfold!

I illustrate and write my own children's books; tutor in watercolours and oils/acrylics and am embracing the development in my artist world!

I am loving pastels as a medium but I am frustrated that this portrait among other work has been spoiled by using fixative. Even the best stuff tends to darken...
Ian, I remember this photo from when it first came out in National Geographic. You've captured it very well! I'll admit that I've never liked this image... view answer
