This is the next stage of the 18 x 14 oil portrait I am working on and I hope to have a final scan by the weekend. I will most probably have one more stage to photograph before that though and I will blog it hopefully tomorrow. I don’t think the colours are showing as well as they are here in the studio so ill make your the final portrait is photographed under the photography lights as its a bit too large to scan.
I spoke to a lovely lady in Hong Kong today who emailed to ask if they could do a piece on Nick and myself for the South China Post. Im really hoping I get a copy of the article and if I do I will blog it : )
Next stage to Dog Portrait in Oils
Here’s the next stage of the oil portrait I am working on of Cracker and Pippa. I will be going back to do the details on both dogs now that I have completed this mid way stage. Its really lovely to paint this portrait as both dogs have such a happy look on their faces, I can image they are both wonderful dogs to be with.
Next Stage to Oil Portrait
Here are the first stages of the double dog portrait I have been working on in oils to the size of 18 x 14. I thought I would wait until Nick had completed the pastel horse portrait so that all of the stages of this portrait were together. Nick is starting back next on the large oil painting of Stig on a Scotland beach. I have taken one photo of it already so will post it when this one is complete. its looking lovely already.
Next stage to Dog Oil Portrait
First stage of Oil Pet Portrait
Here is the final photo of Tobi in oils. The sun has come out today, just in time for me to take photos of the painting as he wouldn’t have fitted in the scanner as its an 18 x 14 oil. Nicks started back on the large cat portrait in pastel so I will be posting a stage – possibly later today and tomorrow, final photo hopefully Tuesday.
This is the most up to date stage as of this morning and I’m working on it more today I hope to be finished tomorrow. The colours haven’t quite come out the same in any of these photo so the final should show it close to the composite.
Here the next stage in the oil portrait. The weather here in Wales is very dull, rainy and overcast and so its quite dark in the studio at the moment for taking photos. Working under our daylight lamps on our easel is fine though and you can see how bright the light is as its coming down form the top of the painting, but not conducive for photography! We are hopefully getting some new replacement bulbs for our photography lights next week as one set has given up the ghost. Ill have another stage of this portrait tomorrow though.
