Welcome to our horse portraits in detail horse gallery. Here you will find a variety of in detail photos of our horse portraits from the last few years. As you may already know from looking around our website, we specialise in oil paintings and pencil drawings of horses. Many of the in detail photos below show our hands and paint brushes working on the portraits to help give our clients and readers scale to the artwork. All of our artwork is traditionally hand painted and drawn by ourselves.
We sit for many hours at a time working on the painting and drawings. We have a purpose built studio in our woodland garden and its lovely, cosy and warm. We are surrounded by wildlife, it,s a beautiful place to be creative and to paint and draw your portraits for you! We hope you enjoy looking at the up close and in detail gallery of photos of our artwork below and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email us at any time!
The close up and in detail photos of the horse portrait below was commission in 2018 of a beautiful horse called Elly. Our clients commissioned a 24 x 18 size oil painting which is a wonderful size to have a horses head study painted. As you can see from the close up photos below, the amount of detail in the painting is beautiful. The portrait was traditionally hand painted in oils by Nicholas Beall. The recipient was thrilled. If you would like to read about the commission you can do so on Elly's Horse Portraits in Oil page.

This is an older portrait commissioned in 2014. Its amazing how fast the time passes as it only seems like yesterday Nicholas was painting all of the details of Leah's tack.

testimonials.....Melanie & Nicholas,
The portrait has arrived! I cannot adequately express my appreciation. I feel as though my sweet boy, Maximilian, is now here both in body and spirit. The resemblance is striking, the workmanship outstanding! You have captured his essence, heart, and character perfectly. I am forever indebted to you for giving me the opportunity to keep him forever close.
We all still miss him terribly. I hope to put the portrait on his website with both (due) credit and links as well as soon as possible. I hope we can work together again soon for another portrait. Right now, I am just too overwhelmed..
Thanks Again and Kindest Regards,
Carol Di Bari
