Eleanor and her family commissioned one of Nicholas' equine portraits in 2015 as they asked him to paint their stunning horse Ariel as a special Christmas gift for Eleanors mum. Eleanor had the perfect photo of Ariel that we could use as the basis for the portrait and requested a bespoke size of canvas at 13 x 16 inches to fit with another painting they already had in their home. We are always more than happy to work with our clients on the size of their paintings. We have a wonderful company who hand make all of our canvases here in the UK and they are always happy to make any size for us from very small to extremely large.
The portrait has been framed in the most beautiful gold swept frame that we have made bespoke for us using a wonderful company in the South of the UK. They work with us very closely on the exact size of our canvases and we have perfect results each time. I have taken a number of close up photos of the painting once it was frame along with one on our mini easel in the studio.
Eleanor also ordered one of our engraved plaques for the frame. We work with an engraving company who make one off plaques for us in Gold Silver and Bronze and these are very popular with our clients. We really hope that you enjoy viewing this page about Ariel. Check out the fantastic photos Eleanor emailed when her mum received the painting too!
Christmas has been busy! Mum absolutely loves the painting! :) Here are some photos of the painting where it is at the moment. We aren't sure whether we're gonna keep it here or put it somewhere else in the house but thought I should send through some photos anyway :)
Thanks so much again for everything!
Just seen the photos and video and it looks stunning! Very excited to see it! It's being delivered to work instead of home to avoid mum seeing it before the day so will need to be transported home tomorrow in the car, hopefully this is okay as long as we are really careful! I will let you know that it arrives safely and will hopefully send through some photos of us and mum with it! Thank you so much again and Merry Christmas!
