After speaking to many artists over the years, there’s one
thing I’ve learned if nothing else. Painting people is
difficult. And painting moving people is especially
challenging. Therefore this stunning series of paintings by
Devon-based artist Sally Lancaster is one to be appreciated.
Entirely self-taught, Sally has won numerous awards for her
fine, highly detailed oil paintings, which she regularly
exhibits in London as well as in various galleries around the
UK. In 2012, Sally was commissioned to produce a painting for
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and in 2013 she was
awarded Full Membership of the Society of Equestrian Artists
and accepted as an Associate Member of the South West Academy
of Fine and Applied Arts in 2015.
Characterised by fine brush strokes on subtle backgrounds,
Sally’s focus is always on the beauty of the subject itself,
often observed from an unusual angle. She is fascinated by
detail and light, capturing every expression, movement and
subtlety of the subject.
Sally is highly respected for her portraits and original art,
meticulously producing paintings to evoke emotions and allow
the viewer to enjoy the beauty and true personality of the
subject. The artist takes on a small number of commissions each
year, details of which and contact information can be found on
her website sallylancaster.co.uk.
