How much does a horse portrait painting or drawing cost?

Commissioning a horse painting is an exciting experience offering you the chance to collaborate with me to produce a unique piece of artwork that not only describes your equine partnership, but also looks great in your home. A treasured gift for yourself or a loved one. A horse portrait is not just a piece of art, it's a timeless testament to the bond you share with your equine companion.

What is the Process of a Horse Painting or Drawing Commission?

  • Initital Consultation

I work closely with you to understand your vision and preferences. Whether you want a realistic oil painting or something with an, impressionistic portrayal, I can tailor my approach to your desires.

  • Your Portrait Painting or Drawing Begins

Once we have decided on a suitable composition I will be ready to start working on your portrait. I can give you regular updates or you can wait for a big reveal once it is completed.

  • How Long Will a Portrait Commission Take?
The quickest I can turnaround a portrait around is about 2 weeks, but this depends on how many other bookings I have and which medium your portrait is being created in. Pastel drawings and graphite drawings are the quickest. Oil paintings take much longer due to the long drying process.
  • Can you frame my portrait painting?
Yes. I have access to many colours, shapes and sizes and can choose a frame to match other frames you have in your home or to complement your new artwork.
  • Artist Nameplate
I also can provide a beautiful gold or aluminium nameplate to add any description of your choice. A great way to remember a special horse or event.
  • Secure Shipping or Collect From my Studio
I ship worldwide and welcome collections too! Speak to me at the time of booking if you require shipping outside of the UK.

More than one subject?

I can create a wonderful portrait of more than one horse, I would however need to take a look at your available photos so that I can plan a suitable composition using the available reference photographs.
I can then give you a price quote and suitable artwork size. 

Plain or detailed Background?

My prices on this page are for a plain background, I will choose a heavyweight pastel paper to compliment your horses colouring or you can specify a colour if you have other portraits to match.

If you would like a detailed background then please let me know and I would be happy to quote for it.

Can you Frame my portrait?

Yes! I am happy to organise framing of your portrait so that it is ready to hang up when it arrives.
