Leah’s first stage

Here is Leah’s first stage. The painting is a 14 x 10 oil on linen canvas and Nicholas is working on Leah as we speak. I will have more stages tomorrow as its coming along really well, I just need to take more photos of Nick working on the painting so I can add them here :)


Final Scan of Doc

Here is the final scan of gorgeous dog called Doc who is sadly not with us any longer. It is a 16 x 12 pencil drawing and is going to be given by the clint and their family as a special gift on Mothers day and so it will be sent over to the US asap. We hope that they all love it.


Ballycastle King Final Scan

Here is the final scan of Ballycastle King. The painting is 30 x 20inches painted in oils on Italian Linen canvas made bespoke using Tulip hardwood stretcher bars. The portrait is here in the studio drying while we are waiting for the frame to be made. Very exciting news actually as the frame is going to be extremely special – something which we hope to soon offer to all of our customers – so watch this space!! We hope you like this one, Nick has already started Leah’s portrait and I will post the first stages later today.

Final Scan of Langston

I haven’t blogged for a number of days as we have both been very busy here in the studio. I am now about to catch everyone up on the happenings here starting with my pencil portrait of Langston which I completed a few days ago. Its going to be sent off to California tomorrow all being well. I hope you like it! More posts to follow….


Ivar and Gaspar Final Scan

Here is the final scan of Ivar and Gaspar’s portrait. This is for a returning clint in Paris, France and I have drawn Gaspar previously, however now they have a lovely companion for Gaspar I have drawn them as a double portrait. Hopefully this one will be sent off early next week to to framed and displayed in the clients Library.

I have just started the portrait of Langston and I will also have a final scan of Nicks oil painting of Ballycastle King soon too.


Ballycastle Next stage

Here is the next stage of Ballycastle King and as you may have seen from the mockup the client had requested the racing colours to be incorporated within the painting. Nick has started the racing silks below as you can see. This is the first coat of the white, another coat to layer on next with a few final details later today. The overall coolers of the painting are showing very cold here in the studio, the final scan should show the true colours better and I hope to have a final scan in the next few days!
