Here are the photos of Biscuit and Cookie framed. It was a little dark for photography in the studio today, but I wanted to take a good number of photos to add to the blog to show our readers how beautiful the portrait looks of Biscuit and Cookie framed. The frame is a Chelsea City frame, one of our favourites. Its all packed up and ready to go to the post office first thing tomorrow! We hope you like it!
Here is the final scan of Biscuit and Cookie! It is a 16 x 12 oil on Italian Linen canvas of two most adorable spaniels looking over a stable door in our clients home. I am taking the painting to Jane our framer tomorrow so it can be fitting in the Chelsea City frame which has already arrived and as soon as I have it back in the studio I will take photos and blog them here asap.
We are still waiting for the background to Ariel to dry so I should have photos of the painting framed after the weekend!
Here are the next stages of Biscuit and Cookie, there are a couple of days worth of stages below as I was a little behind on the stages from yesterday, there were still a few in the camera. Nicholas will be working on the painting all day tomorrow and hopefully I will have a final scan to post here soon!
We would like to officially thank our client Mary for taking these beautiful photos of my pencil portrait of Daisy now she is framed and standing on the display easel in their home. We are absolutely thrilled to receive them and they will be going on our website very, very soon! The frame that has been chosen is fabulous, it is off black with antique pewter highlights and the inner frame, which is my favourite part as it works really well with the drawing, is matching but in antique pewter. The framer has done a marvellous job!
We really love to receive photos like this from our clients as it allows us to see what our portraits look like in their forever home Thank you Mary!
Here are the first stages of Biscuit and Cookie – aren’t they gorgeous! Im loving this portrait, its a 16 x 12 oil on canvas and Nicholas is slightly ahead of my photos so I will have more stages to show tomorrow. Its been a very busy day here in the studio, lots of portraits packed, scanned and photographed but I’m back to my easel drawing the montage of Naughty tomorrow which will be lovely.
More coming soon!
Here is the final scan of two beautiful cats called Floyd and Rufus. They are drawn at 16 x 12 and will be sent to my client this week to give as a Christmas gift for his family. Sebastian and myself spent a lot of time working on the design for the portrait, many mockups went back and forth, working out which photos of the cats would work best together and the overall design of the portrait. I think we came up with a lovely composition – and a very peaceful one too. I hope you like it!
