Welcome to the Entlebucher Mountain Dog portrait of Lance! Jennifer contacted in 2017 and wanted to commission a painting of her partners dog Lance who is an Entlebucher Mountain dog. Jennifer had a wonderful photo of Lance that we all felt would be perfect for a portrait, also it was really good quality too. He was sitting on their deck covered in sawdust after they had been cutting wood fixing the deck.
We did a number of mockups showing how the portrait of Lance could be. The first being the head study, following on with some full body with background or with a plan background options. Jennifer opted to have him portrayed head and shoulders accompanied by an outdoors green background. This allowed Nicholas to really focus in on Lance and capture his features beautifully and the neutral background allowed Lance to pop too.
Nicholas painted Lance at 16 x 14 inches and traditionally hand painted him in oils on canvas. The portrait was then framed and headed off to USA in time for Jennifer to present the painting to Bob at their wedding rehearsal dinner. Jennifer very kindly sent us photo which you can see below, along with photos of the portrait framed.
The first photo below is of Bob with his Entlebucher dog called Lance, as well as the painting which Nicholas created for him. Jennifer commissioned Nicholas to paint Lance as a surprise gift. The portrait was to be presented to her fiancée Bob at the rehearsal dinner on the eve of their wedding and the surprise went really well. Jennifer emailed….
I just wanted to update you on Lance…it was a hit! I gave the portrait to Bob at our rehearsal dinner last Friday and to say the least, there were tears because he was so happy and emotional.
Jennifer took a lovely photo of Bob and his dog Lance for our website which you can see below. It will be adorning our website when we create the updates on Lances page in the coming weeks. We would officially like to congratulate Jennifer and Bob on their recent wedding. Also, very best wishes for a long and happy life together!

Thank you so much for helping to make our big day special! I’ll send more pics when we put it up on display.
Pet Portrait of Lance an Entlebucher Mountain Dog – Framed
The colours of the frame work really well with the oil painting of Lance. It all holds together beautifully mainly because the colours of the frame match the painting. Our framers always do a good job of framing paintings for us.
Finally if you would like a portrait painted of your dog, especially if you have an Entlebucher Mountain Dog, get in touch! We would love to hear from you. Nicholas works to a fairly long timescale for his oil paintings, so if you have a portrait you would like for a special date like Jennifer did, please let su know as soon as possible. We can often rearrange our schedule, however it’s not always possible if your date is very close. We can always arrange a gift voucher if the portrait is to be a wedding gift to the bride and groom. They can help arrange the painting afterwards! Contact us via our website or WhatsApp us at anytime and let us know your requirements. We look forward to working with you soon!
