The cat pet portraits in oil of Purdy was commissioned by Alan and Amanda Siddall, UK in 2014. Sadly Purdy is no longer with us, however Alan and his wife had one stunning photo of Purdy which was perfect for a portrait. Alan and Amanda decided that 12 x 10 would be the perfect size for Purdy too. Nicholas wanted to create warmth within the painting along with a soft focus background and I think he has achieved this beautifully. The background gives the essence of Purdy being outside in the garden, but doesn't overpower the scene and allows Purdy to take center stage. Alan visits us here in the studio to collect both the portrait of Purdy and the other portrait he commissioned of Milly and Molly. You can see a few photos of the portrait framed in the beautiful Ornate frame with inner slip and some photos of Alan and Nicholas with the paintings.
This has been a lovely experience.. so excited.. cant wait to get the portraits home..
I've shown so many people your website and everyone is impressed with how the girls look.. my sister remembers Purdy fondly and she almost cryed when she saw her portrait.. as I did.. I hope you know what you do brings happiness to many people. With many thanks always Amanda x x
