Final scan of Lincoln

Here is the final scan of Lincoln. This is a 14 x 14 oil on linen canvas painted by Nick. I really love our square portraits, they look fabulous and the overall presentation of them work so well. They are both contemporary and traditional at the same time. We hope you like this one. I will have a final scan of Willow soon and also photos of Ballyscatle King too!


Next stages of Lincoln

Here are the next stages of Lincoln. Nick is painting as we speak and I should have a final scan by the weekend. We also now have the amazing frame for the painting of Ballycastle King and its all here in the studio ready to be photographed. I will be posting photos very soon!!!



Truffie’s Portrait framed!

We have just received these wonderful photos from our client of Truffie’s portrait all framed and hanging in situ. Aren’t they fantastic! I am going to be adding them to our website this week – can’t wait! We would officially like to thank Dawn for taking the time to photograph the painting and send them to us. We hope you like them too!

Hi Nicholas and Melanie

I have now got Truffie’s portrait framed and hanging on my wall.  As promised here are some shots of it hanging and some close ups showing the frame for use on your website.

I chose a dark and gold frame as it really brings out the tones of his painting plus the linen slip with gold edging highlights the brighter tones.

I am absolutely thrilled at how his painting turned out. Hope you like the pictures.

Take care, best wishes

Dawn xx
