Welcome to our Horse Oil Painting of Chico. Chico was commissioned by returning client Una, who asked Nicholas to paint not only the portrait of Chico but an oil painting of her Labrador called Amber too. You can view the oil painting of Amber on our Oil painting of Amber page.
The portrait of Chico is a 14″ x 14″ oil on Italian Linen Canvas. The portrait is based on a photo taken of Chico in an autumnal woodland setting which is the perfect backdrop. The colours in Chico’s portrait work so well. The warm sienna browns and yellow ochres of the woodland. Nicholas has captured the whole scene beautifully. You can see a finished scan below and I hope that you like it as much as we do!
Horse Oil Painting of Chico – Stages
This is a photo of the portrait in progress. Nicholas traditionally hand paints all of his portraits, standing hat his easel. he works in our art studio every day and thoroughly enjoys his job.
Here is also a photo of the portrait of Chico on Nicholas’s easel when the sunlight was streaming through the window. We felt that it would make a lovely photo for our blog.
The Portraits Video and Frame
Here are a couple of photos of the portrait framed, along with a lovely video of both of the paintings for Una when they were complete.
Finally we hope that you have enjoyed viewing the portrait of Chico and that you visited Ambers page too. If you would also like an oil painting of your horse or dog, please do get in touch. Don’t forget if you would like a painting for a special date, let us know as soon as possible.
