About the Commission of 'KitKat'

Pet portraits reference photos

Steve Kyle commissioned an oil painting of his Spaniel as a birthday surprise for his wife in 2019. Steve took a number of photos of KitKat in their back garden especially for the portrait. Photos are key for our portraits, and taking photos of dogs outside in the daylight is really helpful. Good lighting for paintings is very important!

The portrait was framed by our framer Amanda in our Bayswater frame. The frame works beautifully with the colours and tones of the painting and being a dark frame brings out KitKat's eyes too. The frame is also a good width and really compliments the size and shape of the painting.

Gill, Steve's wife was thrilled with the outcome, scroll down to read a testimonial from Steve and to see some photos of the painting framed and complete. We hope you like it!


Melanie, all safely received. Gill loved her surprise Birthday pressie.
Thank you for all your help.
Best regards
