Dog Portraits by Melanie & Nicholas

My name is Melanie and along with my husband Nicholas Beall we are professional dog pet portrait artists. We work full time, creating custom paintings for clients all over the world, painting and drawing in our little rural cottage in the heart of Wales UK. We are professionally trained dog pet portrait artists, we studied Natural History Illustration where we drew and painted all animals and wildlife, which taught us how to draw correctly. This is the key to any pet portraiture, understanding the anatomy, the movement of the dog, the muscle structure and more. This is why our dog portraits look so life like and realistic, yet still retain an artistic and painterly quality. We have been accepting commissions for over 17 years and simply love our job!

"...For a fifth time you all have provided us with a degree of closure regarding the loss of a beloved pet. Nick's rendition of Murphy in oil is stunning, that look was one Murphy gave me many times. Everything about the painting is beautiful, Murphy's color, his look, the framing...I hope you both know that coming to you on five different occasions is a testament to what Barb and I think of you both as artists. I do not believe any amount of money can improve on what you all have done for us. Gary and Barbara"
