Horse Portraits - Oil and Pencil Pet Portraits

Hello and a very warm welcome to our horse portraits website. My name is Melanie Phillips and along with my husband Nicholas Beall, we are established horse portrait artists. Working in oils on canvas and graphite pencil on paper, we are professionally trained artists and have been accepting commissions from clients worldwide for 22 years. We have been lucky enough to have drawn portraits for some wonderful clients including Lady Bamford and the Aga Khan to name a few. We paint and draw with the greatest attention to detail, allowing us to accurately capture a true likeness and an everlasting memory of your horse. We hope you enjoy viewing our website and you are more than welcome to email us your photos today.

Horse Portraits in Oil & Pencil

Nicholas specialises in the Oil Paintings on canvas, and I specialise in the pencil drawings of horses. We work from your photos, capturing the unique personality and character of 'your horse' on paper or canvas. If you would like to see our artwork up close and in detail, why not pop over to see our Horse Portraits In Detail Gallery. You wouldn't normally see portraits up this close, everyone who views artwork usually stands a few paces back, however we wanted to show our prospective clients how beautiful and full of fine detail our portraits are.


Horse Portrait Prices & Info

If you are looking to commission us, one of the first pages you might like to visit is our Prices page. If you are looking to find out how the whole process works for commissioning a horse portrait, our commission process page follows a previous commission from start to finish. It gives all of the necessary information on how to commission us. Any questions you are more than welcome to email us at any time.

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!
