fine art horse pet portraits by commission
Welcome to our horse portraits prices and contact for our oil paintings and pencil drawings. If you have specific ideas for your horse portrait, please let us know. In our experience, if budget allows, choose the largest size you are able for a horse portrait. More so than other subjects, horses benefit from larger compositions, especially if you are having a full body painting or drawing.

During the last 25 years of commissioning horse portraits, we have found our most popular size for an oil head study seems to be 18 x 14 inches. Let us know if you have specific ideas and you would like a bespoke quote, just drop us a line, particularly if you are looking to include background settings or landscape scenes.
A deposit is required to save your space in our commissions list, £500 for oils and £200 for pencil. UK clients pay via bank transfer and overseas clients are invoiced within a secure online payment link. We accept all debit and credit cards including Amex. Installments are also available. Final payment invoiced a week prior to starting. Email us with your photos to start the process.
We send our portraits via DHL or Parcelforce and shipping charges depend on the size of painting and whether framed.
Photoshoots of your horses
If you are struggling to take photos of your horses, please do get in touch. If you are not too far away from us we are happy to come out to take photos. Alternatively we can work with a professional photographer to come and take a range of photos especially for the portrait, just let us know where you reside and we can help you make arrangements.
Our horse portrait gift vouchers are a superb way of giving a portrait to family and friends. Especially if you would like the recipient to be able to choose their own photos to be used for the portrait. Photos are absolutely key in creating a high quality and realistic portrait in both oils and pencil. It's often difficult to take photos of horses, especially without ruining the surprise. Not to mention having the photos taken outside without tack and rugs etc. So we have found having a few snaps of the recipients horse is the best way to create a personalized card, for you to give them on their special day and they can help have full input and be completely happy with their portrait. It is the perfect way of giving them a gift of a horse portrait.
All you need to do is get in contact with us to arrange the photos for the card and a deposit. The final payment will be due from yourself when we are about to start the painting. You can have the card mailed direct to the recipient or to yourself to give personally. All of our details will be printed in the cards so they will have everything they need to get started! The card size is a 7 x 5 inches Moonpig card and it will be sent First Class worldwide. Drop us an email above with your ideas and we can discuss your requirements.
testimonials.....Melanie and Nicholas,
We have just received Asher's portrait back from the frame shop today. They said it was the best pet portrait they have ever seen. We will be hanging it up in the front hall entry in the next couple of days. We went with a black wood frame to match more of our home decor. Thank you so much, it is just amazing.
