Commission of 'George' - Horse Portraits

horse portraits reference photos

Sue and her daughter Anne Griffith, contacted Nicholas about his horse portraits in 2011. They wanted to commission a painting of their gorgeous horse George and wanted his to be portrayed at 20 x 16 size. This is an excellent size for a head study painting in oils, it gives just the right amount of space for the perfect amount of detail to be painted.

Anne emailed a favourite photo of George, he was just peering around the stable door with his 'Star' showing which is how they wanted to see him.

George was 19 at the time of commissioning and was greying quite a bit, however they wanted to remember him more how they knew him when they met him. So this was the perfect photo to be used.

Both Sue and Anne were thrilled with the painting which they opted to have framed with our local framer. I have also included two emails from Anne and Sue when they saw and received the portrait!


Hi Melanie and Nicholas
Wow, it's AMAZING!!!! Thank you so much, the likeness is absolutely staggering. Nicholas has captured George to a tee and we can't wait to see the original, but know we shall always treasure it. We simply cannot thank you enough and find it hard to find the words to tell you just how delighted we are.
Thank you again
Sue and Anne x
