Have a look around my website and if you would like to commission a pencil pet portrait, send me your favoruite photos via email at any time.


Pet Portraits up close and in detail

View Nicholas' work 'Up close and in Detail' on our dedicated pet portraits gallery page, showcasing photos of selected commissions with Nicholas' hand and paintbrush on the painting to give scale. The portrait above is Boomer, a 24 x 18 oil painting for a client in Canada. Kristian and Deepy very kindly sent us a photo of themselves standing next to Boomers painting in situ and I have also included their wonderful email below.

Happy Clients!


I received the picture of Boomer a few weeks ago from my boyfriend, Kristian. It is by far the most beautiful picture I have seen! It is so accurate to how my dog looked like and looks so real that it makes me emotional every time I glance at it. What an amazing gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life; I really don't think it will ever be topped. Thank you for helping us honour Boomer's life, he will always be missed and never forgotten.
Thank you,
Deepy Sidhu
