Commission of 'Manu and Haka' - Rhodesian Ridgeback Pet Portraits

Kirsten Timms, USA contacted us in 2012 enquiring about our Rhodesian Ridgeback Portrait as she had particular photo she had taken of her two Rhodesian Ridgeback's Manu and Haka while they were on holiday. The photo was perfect to paint from and Nicholas was thrilled to be given the opportunity to paint this for Kirsten and her family. Kirsten wanted quite a large painting and we were pleased to hear this as there was a lot of background involved. If clients want their pets in a landscape painting, it needs to be a good size to enable the dogs to be paintable within the scene. Nicholas painted Manu and Haka at 30 x 20 and it was perfect for them. This has allowed Kirsten and her family to not only have a stunning piece of artwork in their home, but to bring back wonderful memories of their beloved dogs and their holiday. I have added a number of photos taken during the painting process along with a final scan and some close up photos of Nicholas' hand on the painting. Kirsten opted for us to frame the painting and ordered an engraved plaque too. Kirsten and her family were delighted with the painting as you can read form the emails below. Since this painting has been completed we have created another portrait for them of their twin daughters playing in the garden.


Happy Client Testimonials

We received two lovely emails from our clients when they saw and received their Rhodesian Ridgeback oil painting. We are thrilled that they love it and hope that it brings them wonderful memories of their dogs for many years to come!

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
I just checked the website for the first time in a couple of weeks and saw the photos of Manu and Haka's portrait. Seeing Manu's face coming to life in the painting had me tearing up. I can't wait to see the finished painting!

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
The portrait looks amazing. There is no mistaking them - from Manu's missing toe to Haka's perpetually puzzled expression they are perfectly captured. I'm so excited to see the painting! Regards,
