fine art cat pet portraits by commission
Welcome to our cat oil pet portraits gallery. Nicholas creates the cat portraits in oils and you can see a few of his previous commissions below. All portraits are traditionally hand painted by Nicholas using the finest quality oil paints on Italian Linen Canvas. Nicholas is commissioned by clients all over the world.
Working from one main photo of your cat for the pose he can use others for detail or to combine cats within the same scene. Photos are extremely important, pop over to our cat Cat Photography Tips page to see the kind of photo we like to work from.
We can also arrange framing and engraved plaques. We work with amazing framers who hand-craft and hand finish the frames. Visit our Cat Oil Portraits Framed page to see more.
We hope you enjoy viewing our cat oil portraits, you are more than welcome contact us at any time.
Katie contacted us to ask if we would create an oil portrait of her cat Shelly who had sadly passed away. Katie had two photos she loved, one of which was perfect for a portrait. Nicholas was able to open Shelly's eyes a little as requested and tone down the background setting in the photo. I have added a final photo of Shelly below, along with a photo of Nicholas' hand and brush on the painting too. We hope you like it as much as Katie!
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
It is absolutely amazing I am beyond happy with it. It really looks like her I showed it a couple of people and they thought I was showing them the picture.....Its perfect thank you so much again.
Gary White (USA) has been a returning client for many years and has commissioned a number of paintings of both dogs and cats. The portrait below is one of the latest oil paintings Gary has commissioned of his stunning cat Frankie Blue Eyes who sadly passed away last year. Gary and his wife Barb, wanted to depict Frankie with his favourite toy 'Pooh' and had the perfect photo of him playing with his toy for the painting. Gary was thrilled with the final painting which you can see along with a lovely testimonial from Gary below.
Oh my goodness, Frankie's portrait is, well again, beyond my words to describe. It seems 3-dimensional, and the color is stunning. For the fifth time I am truly amazed at Nick's skill. You'd think I'd quit being 'blow away' by his talents .... I am so thankful that I found you both! I have numerous people who what to see the oil once it's safely here. Again, please tell Nicholas how much we appreciate him and what he's brought to our home.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
Junior's portrait arrived safe and sound today. Nicholas did an incredible job, I feel like Junior himself is hanging on the wall! Here are some shots, one is taken from my front door, you can see, all who enter have a great line of site to him! Another is me and junior with the painting. It's pretty funny, Junior is such a little guy that the painting is literally larger than life! Awesome job Nicholas. Thanks so much, I will cherish it forever!
