Here is the final scan of Milly and Molly! The portrait is 26 x 14 in size and Nick painted it on bespoke made Italian Linen medium grain canvas. The portrait of Purdy and this painting is now ready to take to Jane the framer and they will be both framed in matching Ornate Pewter framed with inner linen slips. I have also taken some photos of Nicks hand on the portrait and added two below. Nick has a number of paintings on the go at the moment, he has been working on ‘CC Top’ the horse today and I will have some stages for everyone to see tomorrow
Here are the next stages to Nick’s portrait of Milly and Molly, I will be scanning the painting in today so will follow with the finished piece!
Here is the final scan of Rufus, a 14 x 14 pencil drawing on Italian watercolour paper. I have been working on him for the last couple of weeks and hes now complete. He is for a birthday surprise this month so I’m really looking forward to hearing what the recipient thinks on his special day. Hopefully this will be sent off to the client in the next few days.
Here are the next stages of Nick’s portrait of Milly and Molly, they are coming along well and I should have another stage tomorrow. I have now completed the portrait of Rufus and will post the drawing next!
Here are the first stages of Milly and Molly. These were completed before the weekend. Back to work today and I will have more to follow tomorrow!
Here is Purdy’s final scan! The portrait is an oil on Italian Line 12 x 10 in size. Its slightly brighter i think in the original here in the studio. Nick has just started the next portrait of Milly and Molly for the same client and I will have first stages very soon.
Here are some final photos of Purdy before the final scan. You can see Nick is just adding the final details to the Purdy’s white fur and whiskers. More to follow!
Here are the next stages of Purdy, Nick has been working hard at his easel today and has started on the details. We will have more photos Wednesday!
Here are the first stages of Purdy’s portrait. It is a 12 x 10 oil on Italian Linen bespoke canvas. The colours are perhaps a little darker overall than the original but its looking really three dimensional and stunning. Sadly Purdy’s is no longer with us, so this will server as a wonderful reminder for Purdy’s owners.
Here is our first short video! We hope you like it. Feedback welcome!

Here is the final photo of Jack, it doesn’t quite show it to its best as it has been very difficult to photograph, but hopefully it will give everyone a good idea of what its like!
