fine art horse pet portraits by commission
Welcome to our horse oil portraits gallery. Nicholas traditionally hand paints his oil paintings using time honoured traditions in oils on canvas. He has been a commissioning artist for over 25 years and loves every minute of painting not only horses but dogs and cats too. Nicholas' paintings are a beautiful gift for any occasion for friends and family, as well as a treasured memorial. Message anytime if you have any questions.
Both Nicholas and myself (Melanie) work from our beautiful garden studio in the heart of the Welsh countryside surrounded by trees, landscapes and wildlife. Take a look at the horse portrait oil paintings below, click the links and thumbnails to find out more about the horse portraits commission and see the paintings in more detail. We'd love to hear from you if you would like your horse painted or drawn, contact us at any time.
My portrait has arrived and oh my god its beautiful!!!! I am so impressed with the detail that has been captured and the way the colours all work together its fantastic - thank you so much.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
What a busy season we've had. I finally had some time to go through some emails and realized I hadn't yet let you know that the painting arrived and it's beautiful. It's really a very real portrait of Remy, it looks just like him. Thank you both again for doing such a great job.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
I just thought i'd let you know that the portrait went down an absolute treat! Lucy absolutely loved it and couldn't believe the detailed that was achieved and just how much you had captured Flynns very unique character. Lucy's family were even so impressed that they are considering getting a study of there dogs commissioned. So I just thought I should say thank you once again for the superb job that you and Nicholas did. Make sure to thank him for me.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
We received the picture on Monday! We are so excited to see it in the person once we get it framed! Thank you again for everything. We have very much appreciated the communication throughout this project.
Have just received Minke's portrait - it is fabulous and exactly her. Please give Nicholas a hug and a kiss from me. Andrew who is the art connoisseur says it is so smooth it looks like a pastel.
Many many thanks to you both
Our clients who commissions one of our horse portraits, whether it is a pencil drawing or an oil painting, quite often tell us how much they enjoyed the experience of commissioning a portrait. They love the interaction with us from start to finish. They look forward to the moment the artwork is about to start and then waiting to see the finished painting or drawing. We love received feedback and emails from clients when they have seen the final photos, it really makes our job worth while. We would love it if our clients would leave us a review, either on Facebook or google!
Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
Have received the portrait safely! It is fabulous, I am so pleased!!! I have shown it to the lady who gave me Poppet - who is quite artistic herself and she loves it. Thank you both so much - a perfect present for my 21st!
Hi Melanie, He looks utterly gorgeous!!!! So amazing! what a gorgeous picture. Nick has captured him perfectly!
Thank you so much for all of your help and work! So excited to get him home in real life, it will make Katrine's Christmas!
Hi Nicholas, I will be recommending your work & will not hesitate to use you again. The portrait is a fantastic likeness of Tango & will bring me much pleasure as he is no longer with us.
Hi Melanie, Amazing work! Better than I expected even. We love our horse and how he looks, but quite honestly Nick has made him look fancier than he is in real life. Thank you for making the reigns work they look very natural and flowing. We are actually finally moving in the house this Wednesday weather permitting and the portrait will be the perfect house warming gift for us. I will also be in contact Melanie about doing our dog Moose in pencil in the future as we love your work as well.
Thanks and we'll talk soon.
She arrived safe and sound, has been hung and looks beautiful thank you. Maybe a little emotional when she emerged from the bubble wrap.
We might be in touch with a view to having one of your pencil drawings of Molly (dog we lost a couple of years ago) commissioned in the New Year.
Truffie's portrait arrived today, was so exciting unpacking it!! The finished picture is absolutely stunning, the detail that Nicholas captures is exquisite. Many thanks to both of you for being so lovely to deal with especially when it was hard deciding to carry on with the portrait after losing Truffie. I know I definitely picked the right people to paint my beautiful boy, I will cherish this forever. I love your pencil work Melanie and may look at getting you to draw my little cat Ruby at a later date....if I can get her to sit still for a photo!
Thank you for being so lovely
Hi Melanie & Nicholas!
I am very happy to let you know that the portrait of Jake arrived safely! It looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS in our dining room!! We could not wait to unwrap it (very impressive packaging that completely protected it!) and hang it up. The frame is also gorgeous and fits perfectly with the portrait. The print is beautiful as well and will be perfect to take to France for our Wedding. Thank you both SO MUCH for the amazing work that you do. It has far exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier! We will definitely recommend you to others!
Warmest wishes, Kim
