Dog Portraits Reference Photos

We love to see a variety of photos of your Spaniel so that Nicholas can see them in detail. He only has photos to go by and the more you can send us the better. He works from one main photo for the pose so let us know which your favourite photo is. He can only work with high quality, sharp photos so take a look at our photography tips and tricks page so you can see the kind of photos we need to work from. We have added three photos of Wilf the Cocker Spaniel below.

Commission of 'Wilf' - Cocker Spaniel dog Portraits

Steve Hocking, UK contacted us in 2018 to enquire about our cocker spaniel dog portraits. Nicholas has painted many cocker spaniels, being one of his all time favourite breeds to paint. Steve commissioned Nicholas to paint Wilf at 12 x 12 size on Italian Linen Canvas as a surprise present for his wife Maureen on her birthday. Sadly Wilf had passed away however Steve had a few lovely photos of Wilf, one of which was their favourite and it was perfect for a dog portrait. Steve emailed when he saw the final scan and Maureen emailed when she received the portrait. You can read both emails below.

Dear Melanie and Nicholas,
Thank you so so much for this beautiful painting of my boy Wilf. Your husband has caught him to perfection - brought tears to my eyes to be reminded of what a handsome dog he was.
Thank you!


Thank you so much. Please assure Nicholas it's absolutely perfect!
Thank you for taking such care.
We're looking forward to seeing the final article in due course.
Best regards Steve


'Wilf' Framed

Steve asked if we would be able to frame the portrait and chose a beautiful frame from our collection on our website called Langham Gold. The colours matched perfectly with Wilf's painting. I have also added a video of the frame too. The portrait was completed with an engraved plaque which you can see below. We hope you like the final completed painting!
