This is the stunning horse portrait in oils on canvas of Billy. The portrait was commissioned by returning client Nicola (UK). We absolutely love working with returning clients, it not only means that we can catch up with all of their news, it means we know that they trust us implicitly with creating a portrait of their horse time and time again. Nicholas traditionally hand painted Billy in oils on canvas. We hope you enjoy reading about the commission....

horse portraits reference photos

Nicola Hulland telephoned us in 2013 as she wanted to get a portrait of her stunning horse Billy painted who had sadly passed away at the great age is 25. Nicola had always wanted to commission a horse portraits in oils on canvas and as soon as she found Nicholas' artwork online, she said that she knew she had found the right person for the job.

Nicola had one main photo that she wanted us to use, it wasnt a very detailed photo but it was clear and a good pose which was just enough for Nicholas to work with.

The portrait is large at 30 x 32 inches and I have added some photos below of the portrait when the painting was framed too. Since the portrait of Billy has been completed, Nicola has commissioned portraits of her dogs too, we love working with returning clients!

Good morning Melanie,
Hope you are well. I am so excited to see Billy's painting. Not to worry if you can't scan it I'm sure the pictures will look amazing.


Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
It's amazing, Nicholas has captured him perfectly. No alteration necessary!
Speak to you soon.
