Welcome to our Horse Portraits Framing - Hand Crafted Frames Gallery. As you may have seen from looking around our website, we create very high quality artwork in pencil and oils and so equally our portraits deserve to be paired with high quality luxury frames. Our paintings and drawings need to be presented and displayed in the best possible way. With this in mind we have searched tirelessly to find two of the top framing companies in the UK to work with us to frame our artwork. You will be able to see below how incredible our frames are and how well they enhance the artwork.
Why not take advantage of opting for our framing service, as being artists working closely with our framers, we can produce the perfect combination between the artwork and the frame. We also work with an engraving company in the UK who we can commission upon your request, to make engraved plaques in Silver and Bronze with either a mirrored or brushed finish to complete the portrait and its frame. Drop us a line or call our studio and chat to us today about your framing requirements.
One of our favourite frames is the Hampstead frame and it is simply stunning. Its a dark frame, however its not just one tone. There are multiple layers of finish and you can see the lighter and redder colours through the rich wood colour in a sort of aged effect. It is very difficult to describe but the overall appearance is beautiful. The frame is very solid, amazing quality and as you can see form the photos below the back if the frame is beautiful too! Its all so well made and we really recommend this frame to our clients.
Our Highgate frame comes in a variety of finishes. The photo below show the portrait in an aged finish, however we have also commissioned our framer to complete the frame using a lovely neutral gold too. The finish is beautiful and so smooth and silky to the touch. A detailed frame which works extremely well with our oil paintings.
This Our Windsor wash frame is perfect for our pencil drawings. It is a very solid and heavy frame made form natural wood with a distressed finish. It is perfect for our engraved plaques as you can see below. Our framer uses a double mount with a neutral grey colour on the inner mount to enhance the frame and the artwork.
Our Knightsbridge frame comes in a variety of sizes and is suitable for all sizes of oil paintings. The gold finish varies from frame to frame as they are hand made bespoke. These frames look absolutely stunning on the wall and are definitely a centre piece for any room.
The Mayfair frame is perfect for our larger canvases. it is a very heavy in weight, solid frame and it a piece of art in itself. Having said this, it still allows the artwork to be the full focus. The colour of the gold is very warm and subtle, not at all bright or overpowering. The fine detail on the inner line and the far outside edge is simply beautiful. It works so well with Nicholas' paintings and as you can see these photos were taken in our clients home when we had placed the portrait in the frame ready for the big reveal. We hope you like the photos and if you are interested in having a portrait framed in our Mayfair frame, drop us a line at any time.
Our Madison frame works extremely well with our pencil drawings and it comes in two finished. A Taupe as shown below and also a slate grey. The frame is sleek and smooth to the touch and would work in most homes. This is a great neutral frame if you are purchasing a portrait for a gift too. The double mount comprises of a cream textured top mount and a neutral light brown colour as the inner mount. The Madison slate version comes with a dark grey inner mount which looks incredible.
This is our longest running frame and is a permanent favourite with our clients. It can be used for both oil paintings and pencil drawings. The oil paintings have the option of having the inner slip too as shown in the photo below. The colour is a lovely mid brown, smooth to the touch and finished with the dark edging and gold line.

testimonials.....Yes, Melanie, We have chosen a lovely gold frame for Butu's portrait which will probably hang in the living room in close proximity to the work of another of your countrymen - Sir Alfred Munnings. Best regards, Rip
