Hi, my name is Ronnie Pattison. I am a professional local artist in Gateshead with over 35 years of experience oil painting in and around the North East. Please visit our shop called PATTISONS in Low Fell, Gateshead where you can see me paint my oil paintings.
I specialise in original oil paintings of landscapes, pet portraits, townscapes and seascapes. If you have a favourite photograph, you can commission me to create a beautiful oil painting for you to treasure forever.
Thank you for stopping by my site and I hope you enjoy your visit.
This oil painting of the Millennium eye bridge on the river Tyne is almost like technical drawing but in oils and this painting really pushed me to my limits. The original oil painting is on a canvas, size 24″ x 18 ” and took over 250 hours to complete in 2002.
Over the years I have painted many landscapes and townscapes. I love going up to Bamburgh, Alnwick and Lindisfarne taking photographs then creating my paintings from my photos. Other favourites I have painted are The Angel of the North, Durham Cathedral, Saltwell Park, St.Mary’s Lighthouse, Newcastle United ground and the bridges over the Tyne.
I also sell prints from my oil paintings of North East scenes from my shop in Low Fell, along with greeting cards and blank cards. My cards and prints of Newcastle and the North East get sent all around the world to friends and families who used to live here.
I very rarely sell the original oil paintings of the bridges over the Tyne because I get so attached to them and they take so long to paint, however I do occasionally take commissions on for these so please ask for details or see my prices page.
I love doing the oil paintings of animal portraits. Every dog, cat, horse or pet is so unique and therefore it excites me every time they come to life from the canvas.
The trickiest part is getting a good photograph of your pet. We can also help with that if you are struggling as I am also a professional photographer with a photography studio upstairs in our greeting card shop at Low fell. I always believe the better the photograph is, the better your original oil painting is going to be.
Unfortunately 50 percent of the pets I have painted have sadly passed away and consequently my customers who commission me to do the painting are heartbroken when their best friend has gone.
Pets become a part of the family and I can remember when our family dog Laddie sadly passed away when I was aged just 16. I had known him all my childhood and I was heartbroken because nothing could ever replace him, but I wished I had a good photo of him so I could do an oil painting of him to treasure forever.
If you have a favourite place or an animal you would like transformed into a stunning oil painting on canvas, all I need is a good photograph. The better the photograph, the better your oil painting will be. Don’t worry if there are things in the photo you don’t want in the painting because I can take them out. Lots of my customers like a plain background when getting a painting of their pet.
Please pop in to my studio where you can see me paint my oil paintings inside my greeting card shop called PATTISONS in Low Fell, Gateshead. In our shop, I take commissions in oils from your favourite photo and turn it into a beautiful masterpiece.
We sell prints and cards from my oil paintings of the North East scenes. I am also a professional photographer so we also sell cards, prints and calendars from my photos.
