Fine animal portraits and other subjects

Based in the United Kingdom, Nigel Statham produces highly detailed pastel drawings to order. He specialises in animal studies which are based on photographs of the animals to be drawn and achieves a remarkable likeness of the subject.

Nigel prefers to photograph the animal(s) himself, although he will accept existing photographs if the quality is sufficient.

The following sequence of photographs illustrates how Nigel can transform a photograph into an exquisite pastel (Click on the thumbnail images to see larger versions):

Transformation from photo to pastel - 1 Transformation from photo to pastel - 2 Transformation from photo to pastel - 3 Transformation from photo to pastel - 4 Transformation from photo to pastel - 5

For animal portraits, Nigel usually charges for each animal included in the picture. Picture sizes are usually a standard 16" x 20" (406mm x 508mm), although different sizes may be agreed if appropriate to the number of subjects in the picture.

Although cats, dogs and horses are his speciality, Nigel will accept commissions for many subjects including, cherished vehicles, property, sporting portraits, in fact - you name it - he will draw it!

Whether the subject is a favourite pet, a family portrait, or a favourite car or house, the final result would make an ideal Christmas or birthday gift.

About The Artist

Welcome to my web page!

I was always interested in art as a boy, but was particularly inspired by the artist Tony Hart from the TV program Vision On.

I lived in Ireland with my parents on a smallholding for a while. It is there that I became interested in animals and would frequently sketch the goats and chickens.

I found that I had a natural flair, and am completely self taught. I now specialise in animal portraits, although most other commissions are undertaken.

My preferred media is pastel which I can use for subjects such as animals, classic cars, homes. However, I do use water colour as well.

I hope you enjoy visiting this web site, and look forward to receiving your commission!

Just thought I'd drop you a line to Thank you for the fantastic
painting. We are all absolutely thrilled with it and my Father, for
once, was lost for words! He is amazed by the detail that you have
put in and I reckon he must have gone to look at it about every 2
Thank you so much for creating a gift that he will treasure forever,
we all appreciate your hard work in producing such a masterpiece.
I'll most definately pass your details on to anyone else wanting a
painting and I'm also working on persuading my husband that I need a
portrait of my horse. Watch this space.......
Many, many thanks"
