Dog Portraits

portrait of your dog is the perfect keepsake to give as a gift for your family, freind or perhaps for yourself. Our portraits make really thoughtful gifts and especially if your dog has passed away, every time your look or just glance as you walk by, our portraits will bring back all of the wonderful memories you had with your dog. This is because our dog paintings are so realistic, yet still retaininly a painterly feel. Commission a Dog Portrait by Nicholas Beall, send us your photos today!

Head Portraits

Many clients like to have an oil portrait of their dog depicting just the head and shoulders with a studio style background. Something simple so that a clients dog is the complete focus of the painting. This can work really well as Nicholas will work with the colours and tones of your dog to create a beautiful, very natural background.

Taking Photos For Portraits

Clients most often take photos of their dogs outside, so it is very natural for them to be painted with a green grass background. This works well if your dog loves being outdoors, running free, laying in a garden or roaming fields.

Backgrounds in Portraits

If you are looking to have a background to your dog portrait and would like to see your dog full body or you have more than one dog, you have the option of having a scenic background too. Depending on the complexity of the background there might be an extra charge for this, however let us know your ideas and we can give you a quote.

Pet Portraits

We will always be able to create you a mock-up of how your portrait could look so please do email us your photos and let us know your ideas. Don't forget the photos don’t have to be of your dogs together in the same photo, single photos are just as good, possibly better as we can put them in the portrait together.

If you would like to book us for a commssion for a special date, drop us a line in good time to discuss your options.

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
Junior's portrait arrived safe and sound today. Nicholas did an incredible job, I feel like Junior himself is hanging on the wall! Here are some shots, one is taken from my front door, you can see, all who enter have a great line of site to him! Another is me and junior with the painting. It's pretty funny, Junior is such a little guy that the painting is literally larger than life! Awesome job Nicholas. Thanks so much, I will cherish it forever!

Dog Portrait Testimonials

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
I sure will! It's a truly magnificent piece hanging proudly in Jeff's office where Puff always used to be :)

Hi Melanie,
What a happy thrill to see the portraits of Jackson and Applejack all framed and with their lovely plaques! I am certain my sister Jan will be very happy with the Jackson portrait - I can’t wait to see her open it on Christmas Day! Thanks again for wrapping it for me in such lovely Christmas paper - that way I can tell her she can open the box and put the package under her Christmas tree! We will be Skyping Christmas Day and I will certainly get some photos of Jan opening the wonderful painting. Thanks again to you and Nicholas for making it possible for both of us to receive paintings of our beloved pets on Christmas!
