Mark Goddard, UK emailed us in 2014 to enquiring about a race horse portrait. Mark wanted to commission a portrait which was to be a a surprise gift for his wifes birthday. He only spoke and emailed us from work so that he could keep everything secret and requested the painting to be in oils at 20 x 16 in size on Italian linen canvas.
Mark had a few good photos of Amosite however want him to be shown wearing a different rug with a particular stripe on, so Nicholas used other photos to be able to do this. I feel that Nicholas has not only captured Amosite well, but has also captured the feel of the evening when the photo was taken at the racetrack - the slightly misty and cold but exciting event with bright lights and hustle and bustle of being there. The natural colour pallet Nicholas has used here is exceptional.
Mark opted to have our local framer Jane frame the portrait for him using the Gold Dots moulding with inner slip and I have added some photos below of the portrait when it was back here in the studio. Both Mark and Claire were extremely pleased with the portrait as you can read below.
Claire absolutely loves the painting! Thanks very much, looks great in the frame too.
Wow! Looks great! I really think it captures the character of the horse & the alertness of her in the photo. Magic hands, Nick!
Thanks very much- my wife is going to love it!
Best Regards Mark
