Oil Pet Portrait Stories

Horse Oil Painting of Chico

Welcome to our Horse Oil Painting of Chico. Chico was commissioned by returning clients and Unable asked Nicholas to paint not only the portrait of Chico but an oil painting of her Labrador too.  You can also see the oil painting of Amber, the second portrait Una commissioned. We have a full blog post with lots of photos 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 on Chico work so well with the warm Siennas and Ochres of the woodland. Nicholas captured the whole scene beautifully and it looking amazing here in the studio when complete.
