Welcome to our dog pet portraits in oil of Lucy. The dog painting below was traditionally hand painted in oils by established artist Nicholas Beall on professionally stretched gallery wrapped Italian Linen canvas. Nicholas works full time on a select number of dog portrait commissions per year and Maria and Jon were lucky to be one of our clients in 2011. Nicholas works from his woodland garden studio in the UK taking inspiration from his beautiful surroundings in his peaceful environment. He thoroughly enjoys creating oil portraits for clients and we hope you enjoy reading about Lucy and her dog portrait below. Please feel free to share our dog portraits page on your favourite social media using the buttons below too.
All of our dog portraits clients can follow the stages of the dog portrait via email or on our Art Studio Blog. We love to hear clients feedback on their dog portrait and they are encouraged to comment at any time. We also are happy for clients to share the stages on our blog with friends and family via social media too. The stages below are just a few from the oil portrait of Lucy.
Great quality photos are key in a good oil portrait. We need to see as many dog photos as you have, preferably at the highest resolution you have them. We can then really see the detail of your dog and add it into your portrait. Nicholas was sent a number of dog photos of Lucy and you can see just a few of them below.
Jon and Maria Kirsch, from New York, USA commissioned a dog pet portraits by Nicholas of their beloved Bichon Frise x Yorkie called Lucy. They had taken a lovely photo of Lucy sitting on a chair which they felt really captured Lucy well. Nicholas felt it was perfect for a painting. Jon and Maria asked if we would paint a fairly large painting of Lucy as they had a particular place in their home they wanted the portrait to be displayed. Nicholas was happy to do this and painted Lucy at 24 x 18 size in the pose you see in the reference photo below, laying on the sofa. Nicholas used a limited pallet of colours to create a soft and beautiful warm painting, full of light. The colours and tones are overall very calming and Jane our framer framed the portrait in a relatively dark coloured wooden frame to compliment the overall colours scheme and to bring out Lucy's beautiful dark eyes. John and Maria received the portrait in 2012 and they sent a wonderful testimonial which you can read below.
Melanie, we received the painting the other day and were overwhelmed with how beautiful it is. It's perfect.
What a terrific job you two did. We can't thank you enough. I'll be sure to send along a picture soon, with Maria holding it and when we hang it as well. It will give us immense pleasure for many years to come. Regards, Jon and Maria
We have a number of different framers that we use for our dog portraits and can usually find a frame to match our clients taste and home decor. The photos of Lucy framed below show a very simple frame allowing the oil painting to really shine through.
