Horse Painting in Oils by Nicholas Beall

Horse Painting


Commission of 'Leah' - Horse Painting

June Foster, UK commissioned a horse painting from Nicholas as a Christmas present for her daughter Amy. When June contact us in 2014 Nicholas was booked up for Christmas portraits so they arranged the commission before Christmas and we added Leah to Nicholas' client list to secure her space. We sent a gift voucher pack for Amy to open on Christmas day with a mock-up of how her portrait could look. This meant that Amy could have full control over which photo was to be used and also watch the painting in progress on our Studio Diary. Amy chose to have a 14 x 10 oil painting and to use a summer coat portrait of Leah which you can see in the reference photos below.

We also took some lovely photos of Nick's hand on the portrait to help show scale and I have added a final scan and detail here along with the reference photos and the portrait in progress. We hope that you like the outcome and if you would like a portrait of your horse painted by Nicholas, don't hesitate to contact us at any time.
