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 which you can see left. It was the perfect pose for a dog portrait.
We decided to paint a neutral background for wilf which would allow his beautiful curls to be blended into the background. Also the overall tones and colours of the background would allow Wilf's eyes to really shine.
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 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
Below is a video I took of Wilf's frame, mainly for our framing page, but you can also see Wilf closer too!
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. The portrait was completed with an engraved plaque which you can see below. We hope you like the final completed painting!
