If you are thinking about commissioning either myself or Nicholas to paint or draw your dog for you, one of the areas you might like to look at is our pricing and information page. It gives a full rundown of the pencil drawing prices, oil painting prices and framing options. If you would like a specific quote, email us at any time.
The framed pet portrait below is of Maggie and Max, a 16 x 12 traditionally painted oil painting on Linen Canvas. Kevin commissioned Nicholas to paint their gorgeous dachshunds as a special birthday present for his wife in 2015. Kevin and and his family very kindly sent us this wonderful photo below of them all holding the painting on his wifes birthday. You can read their wonderful email and testimonial below. You can also view the painting in full on their dedicated page - The Pet Portrait of Maggie and Max >> Check them out here - Happy Client Testimonials gallery >>
Hello Melanie and Nicholas!!!
It would be impossible to convey to you my complete happiness, awe and gratitude for the truly magnificent painting my husband, Kevin, gave me for my 50th birthday. It not only captures my beloved dachshunds perfectly, but our home as well. Now I know that my dogs will live forever and this time in my life has been captured so beautifully. It's SO beautiful!!
I am truly in awe of your talent, Nicholas, and so incredibly grateful to you for doing this work of art for me. I still can't believe it's mine and was made for me. It will be an heirloom for our children as it portrays our home and precious pets so perfectly. Check out the picture showing me and my family on Christmas Eve, my birthday, when I opened this amazing gift.
We take photos at every stage of the artworks development so that you can watch your portrait truly come to life. Stages are shown so that you and your family can feel part of the process and the creation of your very own unique piece of artwork. You can comment at any time or share the posts with friends and family on Facebook. Pop over to see what we have posted today On The Easel >>
We have used some beautiful frames for our portraits, we work along side two companies, our local framer makes all of our traditional frames and another company who makes swept and moulded frames bespoke. These are absolutly stunning and will add a wow factor to any painting. If you are looking for something special to go with your painting, we can provide this for you.
