Here is Georgie. The portrait is on its way to the client as we speak for a very special hand over. The portrait is accompanied by a gift voucher as the recipient will not only receive one of my pencil drawings but Nick will also be painting Georgie in around August this year. We hope that it is a wonderful surprise for the recipient!


Next stage of Leah

Here is the next stage of Leah. The painting is coming along well and Nick is gradually taking his time adding more detail to the face and reigns. The camera seems to have whited this photos out a little, there is a blue sky there somewhere!


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.
