This original oil painting by Anthony Dobson is framed in a hand finished frame and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.


Hand finished frames give a unique character to an original painting as an almost infinite combination of profiles, finishes and colours are possible.

Standard framing involves cutting and joining pre-finished mouldings to make the frame.

Hand finished framing requires a skilled craftsman who will first select a suitable frame profile which is cut and joined to make a bare wood frame.  The frame is then finished using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.  Depending on the finish chosen a frame may take many days to complete as component layers are built up to achieve the desired result. 

The result is a completely bespoke frame made to uniquely complement the original painting.  To this end, no two hand finished frames are ever exactly the same.

For Anthony's work we have chosen a frame with a stained and waxed finish, over a gold slip.


Born in 1971 Anthony’s interest in art meant evenings were spent drawing and painting rather than doing homework - a rebellion which paid off when his first painting sold in 1989.  

Anthony turned down a place at university to study Graphic Design, in order to work on the commissions which followed.  

As well as painting commissions, Anthony has worked on the business side of the art world as a framer, printer and publisher - working commercially with artists and building up portfolios for clients cannot have failed to add to his keen eye for colour, line and form.

He has recently created a stunning and characterful collection of wildlife themed limited edition prints on canvas.  Working primarily in oils, Anthony’s signature ‘detailed, yet not overworked’ style is used to great effect in this latest captivating collection.
