Cat Pet Portraits In Oil
Welcome to Nicholas’ latest cat pet portraits in oil. Katie contacted us asking if we would be able to paint her cat Shelly in oils at 16 x 12 size. Katie has two photos of Shelly, one that wasn’t such good quality, however the second photo was perfect! It was a high resolution photo, clear and in focus, therefore it was ideal to use for a portrait.
Katie asked if we could tone down the bedding and make it much more neutral which was a great idea. This allowed Shelly to be the full focus of the painting. Katie emailed us after sending an in progress photo of the portrait which you can read below.
She looks wonderful already ! Unfortunately Shelly passed away about a month ago so it is really great to see her being immortalised like this. Thank you so much, I look forward to seeing it come on.
Cat Pet Portraits In Oil Photos
Katie emailed when she received the final photo of Shelly which you can read below. We also sent over some in detail close up photos of the portrait with Nicholas’ hand on to show detail and scale. I have added a few photos below for our viewers to see.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
It is absolutely amazing I am beyond happy with it. It really looks like her I showed it a couple of people and they thought I was showing them the picture.
The portrait of Shelly will soon be displayed on our Cat Portraits website. I have lots of updates to add on there from the last few cat portrait commissions we have worked on. Don’t forget to head on over there to visit in a few weeks to see the changes! If you would like to view one of our cat portraits in pencil, head over to my latest cat drawing – cat pencil drawing.
