pet portraits by commission | est 1996
Welcome to the cat pet portraits in oils portrait of Sophie. Nicholas Beall specialises in painting cats in oils on Italian linen canvas for commission. Clients email photos from all over the world and Nicholas' paintings adorn many homes across the globe. The portrait of Sophie is currently in the USA. Nicholas paints all of his portraits from his dedicated art studio nestled in his woodland garden in the UK.
Gregory Boella, USA contacted Nicholas about his cat pet portraits in oils as he was looking to commission a painting of his wife’s cat Sophie. Greg emailed Nicholas a number of lovely photos of Sophie who amazingly had two different coloured eyes! Greg sent us this email which told us a little about why he wanted to commission Nicholas to paint Sophie -"Melanie and Nicholas,
We were very excited to be able to paint Sophie for Greg and his wife, such a well travelled and amazing cat! Greg asked if Nicholas could paint Sophie at the 12 x 10 size and it was a perfect size for her. The portrait was very well received as you can read form the testimonials below. Sadly since the painting was complete Sophie passed away peacefully at the grand age of 21. The portrait will be treasured for a very long time.
Wonderful testimonial from Greg....
Melanie & Nicholas,
The portrait arrived yesterday. It looks just great! Mel is going to be so surprised and happy. Thanks so much for getting it done in the time we had. I've mentioned you to a number of my friends who know Sophie and pointed them to your website and Sophie's portrait. They've been impressed at how well you captured one of Sophie's characteristic looks.
