Oil Pet Portrait

Welcome to the oil pet portrait of Chucho and Jack Henry. Our client Cate ordered two 14 x 12 oil paintings of her dogs in oils on canvas, both framed. Cate has some lovely photos of both dogs and we helped her choose what we felt would work really well for portraits and luckily Cate agreed too! The portraits are below and you can read an email from Cate when she received the portraits…

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
Thank you!! The portraits came in today and they are perfect!! Absolutely beautiful! It has definitely captured Chucho!
Chucho is so sweet and loving, and it really shines through in the portrait. They are both wonderful!! I am so happy and amazed!!
Cate

In Progress

Here are a couple of photos taken during the painting process. Nicholas stands at his easel for many hours per day traditionally hand painting each portrait. Consequently, you can see from the size of the brush Nicholas is using it is a fine and delicate process. Especially when painting long fur, capturing each whisp accurately.

We love the eyes on both dogs, however Jack Henry’s in particular are gorgeous. This was an in progress photo of Nicholas adding detail into Jack Henry’s delicate white long fur on the top of his head.

Framed Oil Pet Portraits

The oil pet portraits of Chucho and Jack Henry were framed using our Highgate Frame It is a very popular frame of ours and it is suitable for many of the sizes of portraits. You can see a larger painting of two Golden Retrievers also framed in it. It is smooth and silky to the touch and absolutely beautiful.
