Pet Portrait of Vinnie

Welcome to the pet portrait of Vinnie! Isn’t he gorgeous! I have added a scan along with a detail of the painting too so our readers can see him up close a little more.

The portrait was commissioned by a returning client Katherine, for a special birthday celebration and was to be a complete surprise to the recipient. The portrait is a 12 x 10 oil painting on Italian Linen Canvas stretched on tulip hardwood. It was traditionally hand painted by Nicholas at his easel.

We recently heard that Vinnie sadly passed away in May and so this portrait will mean so much to the family. If you scroll down the page you will see photos of the portrait in progress, as well as a lovely email from Kath when they had received the painting..

 

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
I just wanted to let you know that the portrait has arrived and is unwrapped and airing. Vinnie looks fantastic! Nick has captured the noble soul that Vinnie was which is pretty special. It’s fantastic – thank you. I’m sure my sister-in-law is going to love it.

Pet Portrait of Vinnie – Stages

Finally here are a few of the stages of the pet portrait of Vinnie! The colours vary quite a bit in comparison to the final scan above. It is all due to the lighting here in the studio at the time of taking the photos. We send the photos of our portraits to our clients via email, consequently, they have them as a keepsake. They love to see the buildup from start to finish. Clients are more than welcome to comment at any time during the process.
