Hand Painted Pet Portraits in Oils

Welcome to Nicholas Bealls Hand Painted Pet Portraits in Oils gallery page. During the painting process I take lots of photographs of Nicholas working at his easel. Most of the photos you can see daily and weekly on our Studio Diary page. I then take some more details photos of Nicholas working on the final details of the painting with his paintbrush for clients to see the painting as close as possible. This not only helps to give the viewer scale seeing the brush and Nicholas' hand, but it also gives our readers a good idea of what the painting and canvas is like right up close.

Oil paintings are generally meant to be viewed form one of two paces away, however Nicholas' work is so fine, the detail is just beautiful, it would see a shame not to show what they are really like when you put nose to canvas :)

All of our Nicholas's oil portraits are traditionally hand painted by himself. He sits at his easel for blocks of three hours at a time, morning afternoon and sometimes evening, to create these works of art. Much time and effort and concentration is put into them and it only seems right to be able to show his work off as good as I possibly can here on our website.

If you are considering commissioning an oil painting, why not drop us a line today with your photos so that we can start the ball rolling on the commissioning process. let us know your ideas and tell us all about your pet!

Hi Melanie and Nicholas, I wanted to let you know that the painting arrived in perfect condition and we absolutely love it! I admit I let it sit for a day or so until me, my husband and my mom (and the dog children) could open it together. Many oohs & ahhs. I can't thank you enough for all the heart and talent you put into their portrait. Looking at it up close, your brushwork, use of color and understanding of dog anatomy is amazing. More importantly, you've captured their expressions and personalities perfectly. (They should only look so sleek & well-groomed in person.) It's an artwork that I'll treasure forever, thanks to my sister's generosity. My entire family sends our heartfelt thanks! I've hung it in the living room where we walk by it several times a day, and it never fails to bring a smile to my face. You are so talented, and your work brings such pleasure to those of us lucky enough to own one of your pieces. I promise to send photos of my dogs wittheir portrait once the weather clears up. I want to stage it out in the back yard where the original photo was taken, but it's been raining all week here. I also have to mention how happy I am with the framing, and I think it's a valuable addition to your line. Now the painting is truly finished, ready to hang the moment it arrived. Your choice of frame is perfect to harmonize with off the tones in the artwork. Special thanks to your framer -- the workmanship is perfect, and I love the fleur de lis paper on the back! A touch of Florence, yes? (I'm guessing he used an Italian paper from Florence.)Thanks again for an absolutely smashing job!

Karen, Robert, Wilma, Winston & Daisy
