Horse Portraits

Specialising in beautiful, lifelike portraits created with digital watercolour brushes

We work with the most stunning felt marked Tintoretto Gesso paper which compliments your horse portrait beautifully. This is available in two thicknesses, which has a subtle difference, the felt mark is ever so slightly deeper on the 300gsm in comparison to the 250gsm. You can read more about the paper on our paper guide page, if you have any further questions, please get in touch.

Your horse portrait is totally unique to you, you may choose to have a simple light grey watercolour behind your horse or include the original background that appears in the photograph. This is a great idea if your horse is standing in its favourite spot or racing through a meadow to add some personality to portrait of your horse.

Alternatively, we can do an artistic mix of both of those options, this is recommended if your pet is photographed with a slight covering, ie stable door is covering its body or your horse is behind a fence.

Whichever you decide, our creative team will work their magic on your personalised horse portrait.

A horse portrait memorial print is a wonderful alternative to a traditional photograph, and we will capture their unique characteristics and spirit in a creative way, making our pet art a touching tribute to the memory of your horse. You can choose to add a little ‘In loving memory‘ text above your beloved horses name and even add a special message below, making this a wonderful memorial keepsake.

We pride ourselves on our high-quality prints, and we do need high resolution images to ensure this is achieved. If possible, you could take a new image using the highest resolution setting option on your camera or smartphone.

We know that in many cases it might not be possible to send a brand-new image across, so please send any potential photographs to our team and we will do our best to help.

A bespoke equestrian portrait gift

If you are looking for an unusual gift for a passionate horse rider, our personalised horse portraits are the perfect gift. By creating stunning digital illustrations from photographs, we can create timeless works of art which serve as a reminder of their special bond. Whether you are looking for a print of the horse alone, multiple horses or with the horse and their owner, our team will design a beautiful illustration which the recipient will be proud to own.

A realistic horse painting is also a very thoughtful gift for those who have experienced the loss of a beloved horse. A horse is an important part of every owner’s life, and when they pass away it can be a very difficult time. However, a custom horse portrait is a beautiful way to remember a much-loved animal forever. If you have a photo in mind that perfectly captures the personality of the horse, our team will create a digital equestrian portrait which brings to life their spirit forever.

How to create your custom horse portrait

The first step in creating your realistic digital horse painting is to decide which photo to use. Ideally, the focus of the image will be the horse, and it should be excellent quality with a bright, light background, as it is the small details which will really bring your watercolour horse portrait to life. If you would like to include more than one horse within the illustration, they will need to be standing together.

We know how important it is to create a horse portrait which is truly unique, so we can add the horses’ name, special dates, and a meaningful message to the print. Simply let us know your requirements and we will do our best to bring your ideas to life. Once the design if finalised, it is possible to choose from either A4 or A3 sized custom horse portraits, which are all printed on premium luxe paper with an option for framing.

Whether you are looking for the perfect gift for an equestrian fan or searching for a realistic digital horse painting for yourself, we guarantee our watercolour horse portraits will take pride of place in every home.
