Oil Pet Portraits by Nicholas Beall

Welcome to the latest Oil Pet Portraits by Nicholas Beall of Chucho and Jack Henry. Our client Cate ordered two 14 x 12 oil paintings of her dogs in oils on canvas, both framed. Cate has some lovely photos of both dogs and we helped her choose what we felt would work really well for portraits and luckily Cate agreed too! The portraits are below and you can read an email from Cate when she received the portraits…

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,

In Progress

Here are a couple of photos taken during the painting process. Nicholas stands at his easel for many hours per day traditionally hand painting each portrait. Consequently, you can see from the size of the brush Nicholas is using it is a fine and delicate process. Especially when painting long fur, capturing each whisp accurately.

We love the eyes on both dogs, however Jack Henry’s in particular are gorgeous. This was an in progress photo of Nicholas adding detail into Jack Henry’s delicate white long fur on the top of his head.
