Standard Chartered Bank
"Standard Chartered Bank collect paintings of people from the many markets in which they operate, David was commissioned to paint two works for the collection which are fabulous and he was joy to work with, they are currently hanging in the Bank's office in Singapore."

"David’s extremely relaxed style and willingness for inclusivity added substantial individuality to my portrait and the result was simply stunning; having spent nigh on 20 years in the air the simple backdrop of sky, especially the inclusion of my 'office' the mighty Buccaneer, brings special poignancy to the overall effect for me - a truly treasured possession. A true craftsman, I cannot recommend Mr Sandell highly enough, thank you David!"
(Group Captain Hyslop - Deputy Commandant RAF College Cranwell)
David, From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very, very much for your work. The whole experience has been enjoyable, and we have ended up with a great work of art and a brilliant memory of our children. Thanks again from all of us - Rob, Paula, Luke & Leo Rob O’Hara 2013
THE PORTRAIT PROCESS
Having a portrait done should be an enjoyable experience for model and artist to create a unique and personal record over a protracted period; perhaps an expresssion or smile often missed by the snapshot of the camera. For this reason I am an advocate of painting from life wherever possible, however personal schedules often mean some use of reference photography and study sketches.
