Sally Trueman - Commission a portrait
Sally Trueman

Sally Trueman is an experienced portrait painter specialising primarily in children's portraiture. Displayed here are examples of her work that have truly incorporated the personality of the sitter and her artistic integrity.

"My technique is predominantly traditional, but I use photography and sketches as the source for my portraiture, this significantly reduces the time and inconvenience to the sitter. I take the photographs over one or two sessions of around two hours duration. These usually take place in the informal atmosphere of the sitter's home or garden. If this is not possible I will work from good quality photographs provided by the client, these could be sent to me as a digital image by email or sent by traditional post."

Each commission will take approximately one month to complete although this time will vary depending upon the client's specifications and the artist's schedule.
