King Charles Spaniel

Welcome to Nicholas’ latest King Charles Spaniel pet portrait. Readers may have noticed that we haven’t posted any of Nicholas’ oil paintings recently. I will be adding them to our blog over the next few days as surprises have been given and frames have arrived!

This is the beautiful portrait of Boone that Nicholas painted in October. Cindy and her family in the USA commissioned Nicholas to paint Boone for them. Sadly Boone passed away at 12 years old and they all miss him dearly. So the family felt an oil painting would be the perfect way to remember him by.

Nicholas was thrilled when he saw the photos of Boone as they were perfect to create a painting from. Boone had such stunning eyes, beautiful colours plus it was a gorgeous pose too. The oil portrait was traditionally hand painted by Nicholas at 16 x 16 inches in size. Once it was complete, Cindy sent us the most wonderful email which you can read below. The family were absolutely thrilled with the painting and we were delighted.

 

Dear Melanie and Nicholas,

My family and I couldn’t be more pleased with Boone’s portrait. You truly captured his personality and the warmth from his eyes and the essence of the Boone that we knew and loved for 12 years. We will cherish this forever. Nicholas, I am in awe of your talent and so grateful that you share it with the world in this way. You bring happiness to so many.

Take care,
Cindy

 


 

King Charles Spaniel Engraved Plaque

Cindy asked us if we would be able to have an engraved plaque made for her to complete her portrait. We have been working with a new engraver this year and the plaques are just simply amazing! Cindy chose to have a mirrored Bronze plaque which worked beautifully with the colours in the painting. Scroll down to see more photos of the frame as it is just incredible!
 

 

King Charles Spaniel – Framed

This has to be one of our favourite frames our framers produce. We have been working with a new framers this year and every single frame they have made for us is simply exquisite. Much work goes into them and they are so sleek and smooth to the touch, they are simply beautiful. The frame that Cindy chose is our Hampstead frame and it was the perfect choice for Boone’s painting. It really brings Boone’s black fur out well plus the inner gold line enhances the warm tones in the portrait too. It was simply the best choice of frame!

If you scroll down to view more photos of the frame close up, you can see the amount of work that has gone into the frame. Our framers go through a number of processes to create the finished piece, its not just one layer. We hope you like it as much as we do!
