Horse Pet Portraits by Artists Melanie and Nicholas

My name is Melanie and I work along side my husband Nicholas Beall. We are professional horse portraits artists specialising in traditional oil portraits and pencil drawing of horses. We have been creating horse portraits for 20 years.

Working from your photographs, we capture the unique personality and character of 'your horse' on paper or canvas. We paint and draw with the greatest attention to detail, which allows us to accurately capture a true likeness and an everlasting memory to treasure for generations.

Horse Portraits Oil Gallery

Nichoals Beall specialises in Oil Paintings, traditionally hand painted on canvas. His Oil horse Portraits Gallery displays just a few of the commissions Nicholas has undertaken over the last few years. You can view his paintings in detail, the portraits framed, reference photos used along with testimonials from clients too...

Horse Oil Portrait Video

This video was taken when two horses portraits were ready to be packed and sent to separate clients for special birthdays.

We hope you enjoy the video, if you would like to see more, take a look at our Horse Portraits Video page.

Horse Portraits Testimonials


Hi Melanie,
Christmas has been busy! Mum absolutely loves the painting! :) Here are some photos of the painting where it is at the moment. We aren't sure whether we're gonna keep it here or put it somewhere else in the house but thought I should send through some photos anyway :)
Thanks so much again for everything!
