Here is the final scan of Nelson the Leonberger. The portrait is a 12 x 10 oil on Italian Linen canvas and Nicholas has been working on the painting over the last couple of weeks. It will now be framed, our client has yet to decide on the frame, but as soon as its all completed we will be sure to take photos and post here for everyone to see!
My next cat portrait is nearly ready to blog, I just have a few tweaks and it will be added here. I’m really pleased with it. Next up is Django so stay tuned!
Here are the next stages of Nelson. The photos have come out a lot greyer, I hope to have a better photo by tomorrow. The scan will also show the colours better too…which will be coming soon! Busy, busy here!
Here are the first stages of the portrait of Nelson for returning clients. Nicholas has been at his easel for a number of days and he is a little ahead of these stages at the moment. I have yet to take some of the newer photos off of the camera so more stages will follow very soon. The painting is of Nelson the Leonberger at 12 x 10 size. He was a very special dog to our clients family and is sorely missed. The portrait will be framed in a wooden frame which I am just in the process of arranging, it could be a new frame to add to our ever growing range!
Here is the final scan of the oil painting of Lilly. The portrait is a 12 x 10 and was painted as a graduation gift for a returning client and we hope that the recipient is thrilled with the outcome! Nicholas has now started the painting of Nelson and I have very nearly completed the portrait of Max so it’s all go here in the studio. More blog posts to follow soon.
Here are the final stages of Lilly’s portrait. I love the first close up photo I took below as it was really in focus. The paintbrush against the canvas looks sharp and realistic and the painting beautifully soft with Lilly gorgeous eyes. I will have a final scan to follow!
Nicholas has been working on the painting of Lilly for the last few days and he is a little further ahead than this below. I will have more stages to follow shortly. Isn’t Lilly lovely! I’m really looking forward to seeing her collar painted with all of the little diamonds. I also love the creamy, buttery background colour he has used. This one is going to be fabulous!
Here is the final scan of Layla, I hope you like her! This is my latest pencil portrait which I have thoroughly enjoyed drawing. My first completed drawing since returning from our holiday. It has been really busy here in the studio over the last few weeks, I have still been catching up with clients emails and mockups. I’m now booking my pencil drawings well into 2017 which is incredible.
Nicholas has started work on the oil portrait of Lilly and I will be adding the first stages later today.
Here is the final scan of the lovely painting of Buttercup. The painting exudes warmth and Buttercups face shines out in the painting. The scan has come out slightly duller than the original, the paint often catches the light in the scanner however hopefully our readers will be able to get a good idea of what the final painting is like.
I have another blog post to follow tomorrow, with my latest portrait and some photos to go along with it. Stay tuned!
