Welcome to the stunning horse oil painting of Ballycastle King. Ted, a returning client commissioned Nicholas to paint his horse Ballycastle King in oils. The oil painting was commissioned at 30 x 20 inches. It was painted on Italian Linen canvas made bespoke using Tulip hardwood stretcher bars. Ted wanted a head study of Ballycastle King, but with it also depicting their family racing striped too. So you can see them at the base of the portrait.
Ted and his partner Janice traveled all the way to Wales to collect their painting. We love seeing both Ted and Janice, such a lovely couple and really lovely people. Nicholas and myself always head out for a meal locally with them, so it is very special when we meet up. We always have a great time! If you would like to see photos of both Ted, Janice and Nicholas, head on over to their blog page here – Happy Clients Ted and Janice.
Ted and Janice have commissioned us to create some lovely portraits for them over the years and this portrait in particular was one of our favourites. Nicholas painted their horse Ballycastle King along with their racing stripes too. Ted and Janice visited our studio to collect Ballycastle King, along with two prints also. The portraits were a success. We all went out for a meal to celebrate at a local hotel. It has been around 6 years since we did the last paintings for them so it was lovely to catch up and we had a fabulous evening.
Horse Oil Painting of Ballycastle King – Framed
Our client asked if we would match a frame from another painting we did for them a few years ago. The frame was a swept frame and so we found a company to make one for us similar. I have added photos for you to see below.
