Ted Andrews, a returning cleint, from the UK contact us in 2015 about Nicholas' Retired Race Horse Portraits. He wanted to commission Nicholas to paint his retired racehorse Ballycastle King. Ted requested the size 30 x 20 to match other paintings we have completed for him over the years. The horse, owned by both Ted and his niece, requested the addition of the racing silks also to be depicted with the correct racing colours on the painting too. You can see this just below the painting of Ballycastle King.
I took a few photos of Nicholas holding his paintbrush to help give scale which I have added along with the final scan and close up detail. The portrait has been framed in a handmade bespoke swept frame, here in the UK, along with a hessian slip. The painting is complimented by a beautiful engraved plaque.
Ted and Janice visited the studio to collect the painting along with two framed prints. We all went out for a beautiful meal to celebrate the paintings and catch up too. A wonderful commission and a pefect evening.
