If you’re thinking about commissioning a portrait, especially one where you want the artist to use a selection of photos then yes, Fabulous Masterpieces’  artists can paint you the perfect oil painting.

For example, you may want to commission a family portrait but don’t have or like the photograph you have of everybody together. In this case you could send Fabulous Masterpieces a photo of each family member for the artist to work from in order for him or her to paint one large family oil painting.

Here are some examples….

Home Grown English Flowers Painted in a Dutch Old Master Style

A customer who is a keen flower arranger contacted us a few months ago with a photograph she took of her flowers.  She wanted to see if we could paint her flowers in the style of one of the Old Dutch or Flemish Masters such as Jan Frans Van Dael.

Dog Portraits by Artists who only specialise in painting dogs!

This is just a quick post to show you a fabulous oil painting of Tilly the dog. I agree, I’m biased but so many people who have seen Tilly’s oil portrait have showered the painting with praise that I just have to show you.

Dog Portraits

Tilly's Portrait, hand painted in oils onto canvas by Fabulous Masterpieces. 30cm x 40cm £220

I think changing the background of the photo and having Tilly painted as if she was in the garden really makes this portrait. Notice how in the photo Tilly’s ear was chopped off and one of her paws also wasn’t captured on camera. The artist has painstakingly painted them in having studied a selection of other photos supplied to make sure he painted Tilly perfectly and that the owner would be over the moon!

If you would like to see other examples of Dog Portraits by Fabulous Masterpieces and prices please click here. Dog portraits start from £220, which includes VAT and P&P.

I hope you agree with me that Tilly’s dog portrait is a fab painting and if you have any questions please contact us or leave a comment!

Turn your Old Black & White Photos into Treasured Oil Paintings!

There are significant moments in everyone’s life that deserve to be captured, and Fabulous Masterpieces is passionate about immortalising them in oils. Our portraits allow emotions, personalities and sentiments to shine through – creating memories that will last a lifetime.

The process of commissioning an ancestral portrait couldn’t be simpler.  Just send us a photograph or two of the subjects you would like to have painted, (either by email or post) and using that to work from, one of our professional portrait artists will hand paint you a beautiful oil portrait onto canvas.  We’re used to working with very old black and white photographs and have painted a plethora of beautiful ancestral portraits for people and their families to treasure. These ancestral portraits are usually then passed down to future generations.

Beautiful Dog Portraits From Multiple Photographs

Our dog artist, who I have to say is fantastic, has just finished painting this beautiful dog portrait of Blauw the dog, a Bichon Frise sitting on Richmond Green.

Blauw's Beautiful Dog Portrait

Blauw's Beautiful Dog Portrait

The owner wanted Blauw (a Dutch name actually meaning Blue because when Blauw was born he had big blue eyes) painted as he is in photograph 1 but with the background of photograph 2.

As you can see Blauw looks really great and so cute in the first photo but the background is hardly inspiring.  The owner lives in Richmond and absolutely adores Richmond Green, taking Blauw there for his walkies daily, so we chose to paint that for the background.

The resulting portrait, I think looks fantastic and in the words of the owner:

“It is really beautiful. We are so very happy. Once again thank you for your prompt work”.

You can see that the background in the portrait is so detailed that the artist has even captured and painted the red mail box!

If you, like Mrs Miwa would like a portrait of your dog be it from one, two or several photos please email Tim at tim@fabulousmasterpieces.co.uk

This particular dog portrait measures 40cm x 50cm and cost £244. All prices include packaging, delivery and VAT. To see more examples of our beautiful dog portraits please follow the link

Our Painting of Edward VIII is Front Cover of The Duke & Duchess Windsor Historical Society Magazine!

A few months ago you would have seen Fabulous Masterpieces’ painting of Edward VIII being unveiled on Channel 4’s The Restoration Man.  We were commissioned by a couple who are currently restoring a huge mansion in Wales and asked to paint 6 oil paintings of historical figures who had actually stayed in the house ranging from great British Prime Ministers such as Churchill & Gladstone to royalty such as Queen Victoria and Edward VIII.   Fabulous Masterpieces’ painting of Edward VIII has now been picked up by The Duke & Duchess of Windsor Historical Society and is front page of their magazine!  To have a look please follow the link.

Fabulous Masterpieces’ Edward VIII Front Cover & Story!

If you’re interested there’s also the whole story of how the painting of Edward VIII came about with pictures of the house and our artist’s mock ups of Edward VIII.  It really is a good read!

What’s so special about Edward VIII?

Edward VIII (1894 -1972) is an interesting character as he actually abdicated the throne for love! He is also one of the shortest-reigning monarchs in British History (he was king for less than a year and was never crowned).  After Edward VIII’s abdication, he was titled Duke of Windsor. Our painting of Edward VIII was actually painted when he was Prince of Wales, he was officially granted that title in a special ceremony held in 1911.
