Commission of 'Kewlia' - Horse Pet Paintings

horse portraits reference photos

Rosemary Cunningham telephoned our studio enquiring about our horse pet paintings. Rosemary wanted to commission Nicholas to paint her daughters horse Kewlia as a surprise gift in 2015.

Rosemary emailed us with a wide range of photos to work with, one which you can see on the left. She asked if the background could be brightened up to look like an early sunny morning, which as you can see Nicholas has achieved beautifully.

Nicholas painted Kewlia at 14 x 14 size in oils on gallery wrap Italian linen canvas stretched professionally on hardwood stretcher - tupliwood. Rosemary also ordered a swept frame form our framers which complimented the painting beautifully. You can see some close up photos of the painting framed below.

Happy Client Testimonials

Rosemary and her family were thrilled with the painting. The hand over was the most fantastic story I have heard of from our clients. Read on to find out how it all went....

Hi Melanie and Nicholas
Well I couldn't wait, so I was meeting Lucy and her husband for supper last night, so I got there early and placed the painting on the wall behind where I was sat, at first she didn't see it then she sat down and said ' I don't believe it' ...kept on saying it she was absolutely over the moon, everyone who was eating in that restaurant were all coming over to it and they all thought it was wonderful, so thank you again, will send you photos soon of it in situ which will be a couple of weeks as they are going to Mexico tonight so be touch soon.
Lots of love
Rosie xx


I love it I can't wait to see it for real my daughter is going to go crazy when she gets to see it. Rosie xx


Hi Melanie and of course Nicholas
She arrived safely, I can't tell you how much I love it you have really captured Kewlia, i can't wait to see my daughters face when she sees the painting she has no idea, but her husband who sent the photo that you used has been following the progress and thinks it's magnificent as I do, I can't thank you enough, I have to save up now to have my dogs painted. I will let you know her reaction and send you a photo of it certainly when it is in situ.Thank you so much I just love it.
