Narrative Dog Paintings

Nigel Hemming

With these five new oil paintings Nigel returns to what he is best known for: his narrative dog paintings. They are the first in a new concept of Nigel’s. He is painting originals in small editions- no more than five – to make them more affordable. As originals, each will be slightly different.
Born in 1957, Nigel grew up in the village of Kinver, Staffordshire. From an early age he showed a keen interest in painting – his rural upbringing resulting in his choice of wild birds and landscape as subjects for his work.
Although he saw himself first and foremost as a wildlife artist, in those early years he would paint any animals requested of him. But in time it became apparent that it was dogs, above all other pets, that were most requested.

Nigel chose to concentrate on his canine subjects and developed the distinctive style of narrative dog painting that has become the hallmark of his work today. As he says himself, “I try to paint pictures not simply of dogs, but about dogs”. Nigel is now regarded as one of the world’s finest artists in his field.
