Sally Gorton

A Surrey artist working in watercolour, pastel, acrylic and oils.

Welcome to my website

I enjoy working in watercolour, pastel, acrylic and oil paints. My subjects can often be described as a portrait; an interesting building, an old window, the glimpse of a garden, an arresting face or sleeping animal.

Many of my pictures are of places that are off the beaten track and you may spot me cycling around south west Surrey on an old black bicycle with a large wicker basket, stocked with sandwiches, camera and a sketchbook! As well as working plein air, I will also use my own sketches and photographic reference to produce my paintings.

Please have a look at the pictures in my website gallery or my Instagram gallery. Many are past commissions but some are for sale, so feel free to contact me if you wish to purchase one or if you would like to commission something special.

  • One-day workshops
  • I occasionally run workshops at the Surrey Wildlife Trust's beautiful Puck's Oak barn and orchard in Compton, near Guildford. They are friendly events and artists of all levels are welcome to attend. Have a look at my Workshops page and contact me if you would like to take part or require more information.
