Welcome to our latest blog post about our Black Labrador Oil Painting of Wilson. Debbie White, a returning client and proud owner of a delightful black Labrador named Wilson, shared numerous photographs in the hope of commissioning a pet portrait for her husband’s birthday. Wilson, known for his affinity with water, was often found frolicking in it.
She provided an ideal photograph of Wilson standing in the river, and using this photo, supplemented by several other reference images Nicholas was able to create a beautiful painting for Debbie and her family. The artwork, measuring 18 x 14 inches, beautifully encapsulates Wilson’s spirit and love for water.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
Please be advised Wilson’s painting arrived safely. It is better than I could have ever imagined. You have captured him superbly and a tear has been brought to my eye as it is undoubtedly Wilson. A dog who is very badly missed but will stay close to our hearts especially being able to see him everyday in your painting. Thank you so much
With very best wishes
Debbie commissioned this oil portrait as a surprise gift for her husband. The joy and surprise on her husband’s face upon receiving it can be seen in the photograph below. This painting not only serves as a testament to Wilson’s lively character, additionally as a cherished memory for Debbie and her husband.
Black Labrador Oil Painting of Wilson – Framed
We helped Debbie frame the painting using our local framer and she opted to have the Traditional Flat frame with a small inner linen slip. The colour of the slip brings out the shine in Wilson’s coat beautifully. You can see some really close up photos I took of the portrait in the studio this afternoon.

Why we love painting Black Labs!
The black Labrador is a breed that’s truly one of a kind. Known for their friendly and outgoing nature, I’m certain that Wilson was no different. They’re the kind of dogs that will greet you at the door with a toy in their mouth, ready for playtime, no matter what time of day it is. They are quick learners, eager to please, and get along well with just about everyone they meet, including other animals.
But what truly sets them apart is their love for water which unquestionably can be seen in this oil painting of Wilson. Throw a stick into a lake and they’ll leap in after it without a second thought. It’s a joy to watch them in their element and we are hoping this comes across sin the painting Nicholas has created of Wilson.
