Here is another of Nicholas amazing Rottweiler oil pet portraits. If you are interested in viewing the others, head on over to his main gallery to see more. This stunning Rottweiler is called Gir and he was traditionally hand painted by Nicholas using traditional methods in oils on Italian Linen gallery wrapped stretched canvas. The oil painting was commissioned by clients in the USA and you can read more about the commission below. If you are looking to have a portrait of your own Rottweiler painted in oils, please do feel free to email us your photos from our contact page today. Nicholas accepts a limited number of dog portrait commissions each year and works to a fairly long timetable however if you would like to chat to us about your ideas and requirements we would love to hear from you. Also don’t forget to share our portraits using the social media buttons below.
We love sending clients stages of their portrait and here are a few from the portrait of Gir. We email them direct to clients to see and upload them to our blog at the end of the process. If you would like to see your portrait in progress, get in touch today.
Nicholas loves seeing photos of your dogs, as many as you can send. He likes to get to know them and their personality and character from your photos. We have added a few photos of Gir below that our clients email to us which Nicholas used for the oil painting. Nicholas prefers to use one main photo for the pose of the portrait and others for detail.
This is Gir (Gir von Hause Milsped) and Warren Johnson emailed us a few days after Gir sadly passed away in 2009 to enquire about his Rottweiler oil pet portraits. Warren asked if Nicholas would paint him in oils for their family as a lasting tribute and requested the portrait to be at a fairly large size of 24 x 20. Warren and his family wanted the portrait to be around life size, and this has allowed Nicholas to create a beautiful painting for them. Nicholas thoroughly enjoyed painting Gir, you can see from the final scan above how much detail Nicholas has managed to get into the painting. The photos that Warren and his family emailed were superb quality and this really helps when painting oil portraits. I have added below some of the stages of the portrait and the reference photos used. I have also added some photos of Gir framed along with an engraved plaque, which you can see a close up photo of. The plaque says - USRC South Central Regional Sieger 2011 - Gir von Hause Milsped BH, IPO1, AD, BST, CGCw
It is magnificent. Thank you so much!!!
