Welcome to our oil painting horse portraits by Nicholas Beall. Nicholas specialises in horse portraits in oil and the commission below a wonderful opportunity to create a horse jumping portrait. Nicholas solely works using traditional oil paints and works at his easel for many hours to complete his paintings. If you scroll down you can read more about the commission of CC Top and also see photos of the painting framed too.
Jeanne Eriksen, Norway, contact Nicholas in 2014 to commission an oil painting horse portrait. Jeanne, who is actually based in the Isle of Man, wanted to send a traditional oil painting of CC Top to her son, who was competing with him in Norway where they reside.
Jeanne emailed us lots of photos, however there was one photo in particular that she wanted Nicholas to use as the main pose of the portrait. You can see this photo on the left and probably note the various things that were enhanced in the painting or omitted to improve on the composition.
The portrait was then painted to the size of 22 x 16 on canvas. You can also see photos of CC Top framed, along with a photo of the portrait framed on the Mini easel in the studio to show scale, along with a testimonial from both Jeanne and her daughter Vicki.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,

Vicki We are so excited about it and think it looks great.
