Rebecca’s aim is to breathe life into her paintings. Her equestrian portraits capture the energy and spirit of her subjects, from thoroughbreds to Exmoor ponies. At rest or in motion, the character and emotion of her subjects can be seen and felt. She also captures the connection between horse and rider.
Each bespoke painting is usually the result of good communication, meeting the owner and horse, taking sketches and photographs. If it is not possible to meet the horse, due to distance or circumstances, Rebecca can work from good quality photographs, with the permission of the photographer.
Prices start at £695 for a portrait, size approx 58 x 48 cm unframed. Framing can be arranged, but the cost will vary according to individual taste. It usually costs around £150 to £200 for this size, using art glass (superb quality glass that reduces reflection and enhances the painting). Commission fees increase with size and complexity of paintings.
For a horse and rider, prices start at £995, unframed. In this case, the painting will portray the horse, rider, and also the connection between the two.
If you are overseas, you may wish to have your commission sent to you unframed.
Each bespoke painting is usually the result of good communication, meeting the owner and dogs, taking sketches and photographs. If it is not possible to meet the dogs, due to distance or circumstances, Rebecca can work from good quality photographs, with the permission of the photographer. As with her equestrian and human portraits, Rebecca’s aim is to use photographs as part of the process, but to breathe life into her paintings.
Portraits of dogs can be a head portrait, or a whole body.
Prices start at £200 for a head, unframed, size approx 34 x 28 cm.
For a larger size, a whole body, or a pair of dogs, prices range from £300 to £500 unframed.
Framing can be arranged.
Please contact Rebecca to discuss your thoughts on how you would like a commission to work.. Rebecca is always more than happy to spend time getting to know the dogs, and finding out what the owners love about them. The painting above of three lurchers took two visits, including a lovely walk with the dogs on Dartmoor, but was well worth the time spent getting a feel for what the owners wanted, and the character of these beautiful animals.
