Elegance of ballet translated into series of fine art paintings by Sally Lancaster

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.
