Cat Portraits Framing Gallery

We are able to provide our clients with a superior quality, framing service for our cat portraits in both oils and pencil. The attention to detail by our framers is exquisite, from the quality of woods used in the moulding, down to the hand polishing, painting and finishing on them. Framing is such an important part of the process and we can't stress enough how important is it to choose the right frame for your cat painting or drawing. We work with some wonderful bespoke framers in the UK who provide us with high quality, luxury frames made bespoke for our cat portraits cleints. We have collected just a few of our framed cat portraits here and if you would like to chat about your requirements with us for your portrait, dont hesitate to email us at any time.

 

Windsor Wash

The windsor wash frame is one of my favourite frames for my pencil drawings. It is only suitable for the pencils due to the narrow rebate. In the photos below you can see the portrait of Tyson and my framer used a double mount / matt of Hayseed and pale grey which works beautifully with the overall colour scheme of this moulding.

Albany Onyx

The Albany Onyx frame is stunning. It is only suited to the pencil drawings due to the narrow rebate. Looking at the mouldings in different lights, it glimmers and glistens due to its amazing texture. It is very smooth to the touch, however when you look in the light you can see very fine lines which catch the light. In all of the three photos below you can see it in different lighting. It is simply beautiful! We paired this one with a smoky dark grey and a mid grey mount / mat which worked really well for the montage drawing of Gilli.

Honey Knots

Our Honey Knots frame is our longest running frame, we have been using it for well over 10 years. It comes in two sizes, wide and narrow and is suited to pencil drawings. It is a very traditional frame and we have found that it is a perfect choice when ordering a portrait if you are giving it as a gift. It tends to match with most home décors - both contemporary and traditional decor.

Ornate Pewter

The ornate pewter frame is suited to both pencil drawings and oil paintings and you can see the photos below showing it with three different oil paintings. The top left was a large oil painting of two cats sitting in grass. The top right is of Sammy and the colours worked beautifully on this portrait due to the warm rich ochre tones in the portrait and the frame. The framed portrait of Purdy is at the bottom and again the colours work really well as most frames with any bronze / gold colours really matches the colour pallet of grass. The natural colours and tones all gel superbly.

Spoon Aged

Our Spoon Aged frame is really versatile and works for both the pencil drawings and oil paintings. We have also used this frame with an inner slip for the oil paintings and it works really well. The frame is hand painted by our framers and is a mixture of golds, bronzes with an aged purple blue tone to it. Each frame is hand crafted so the colours can vary. The cat portrait below is of Max and you can see that the portrait has a double mount with 'Max' written in a rebated oblong in the mount itself. The name was mixed and drawn in using Max's ashes. There was also one of his real whiskers glued onto the portrait in place of a drawn whisker! Such a special commission and a wonderful frame to go along side.
