Portrait Painting of People and Pets
As an artist with over thirty years’ experience of portrait painting, at Portraits by NJ Davies I create distinctive family, single, formal or informal portraits for clients in the UK and internationally. I am based in Bedford and my people and pet’s portrait painting services are available to customers in Nottingham, London, South of England and across the UK.
Portraits make unique presents, vividly recording special moments such as graduations, birthdays and retirements. Corporate portraits are a great way to celebrate the people in your business or organisation. Portraits of your pets can capture the character of your animal friends and companions.

You may have questions and ideas about what you would like in a portrait painting, I would be pleased to discuss possible commissions by email, phone or studio visit.
Your portrait will usually begin with a clear photograph or series of photographs, and, if relevant, the pose and background wanted and close-ups, preferably showing facial details - such as eye colour.
A timescale for portrait painting of people will be agreed and confirmed and you will be kept informed as the work progresses. Your portrait will be crafted in oil paint or pastel using the highest quality materials.
If you wish - a sitting in person for a portrait is possible, however, this is usually not essential when a clear photograph is supplied.

During my years of experience in the industry, my art has developed to include different styles to suit the subject or subjects. If a client requests a particular painting style for a portrait, I would be pleased to discuss ideas. I have worked on a range of different projects, including wildlife and seascape painting, and my work has been exhibited in the UK and the USA.
