Welcome to our Labrador dog portrait of Patsy, traditionally hand painted in oils by Nicholas Beall. Our clients Harlan Crow and family, have commissioned three oil paintings in total. They have them displayed in their beautiful home in the USA.
The family wanted a portrait of Patsy in a specific pose at her favourite location at 18 x 14 size. It was difficult for the family to take photos of her while at the lake, so they took photos of Patsy in their garden. This meant that we could position Patsy in the scene of their choice.
If you would like to see a finished scan and photos of the portrait of Otis commissioned at the same time, head on over to his ‘ Bull Dog Puppy Portrait page. You can see plenty of photos and he is gorgeous! Also scroll down to see Patsy framed in the most wonderful hand carved frame. We hope you like the commissioned portrait of Pasty!
Dog Portrait of Patsy – Framed
As you can see from the photos the family commissioned a professional hand carved frames for the painting. He hand carves each frame with motifs which have meaning for the family. This is the third carved frame we have seen form the craftsman and we are astounded every time. They are simply amazing don’t you think? Leave us a comment on our blog if you like them too!
Our client Karen very kindly took photos of the oil paintings commissioned recently for Harlan Crow and his family. Kipper, centre (Dec 2012) and Patsy and Otis either side (Dec 2014) and they look absolutely wonderful!
Labrador Dog Portrait of Patsy happy Clients
Nicholas commented that it was like his own ‘mini gallery’ in America! The family also commissioned a wood carver craftsperson to make the beautiful frames for the paintings with personal motifs on the frames for the family. We look forward to working with the Crow family again in the future.
“Yes, we had so much fun with this project! We are truly impressed with the portraits and how they turned out so beautiful in their new custom frames. 🙂 Thank you so much for making this process so easy for the family. Love the mini-gallery!
