Watercolour Line People Portrait

Watercolour Line People Portrait


A personalised watercolour sketch based of a favourite photograph, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon.

Drawn in a freehand flowing line, the black and white portrait is then coloured with watercolour brushes to pick out a few highlight colours. This is our artistic interpretation of your photograph rather than a detailed drawing, it has minimal facial features so is not suitable for face-on images.

The poses that work best are looking down, to the side or away from the viewer, rather than straight on.

We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and don't include any background details. The illustration is coloured and digitally printed.

made from:
Hand-drawn illustration coloured on the computer for lovely solid lines and digitally printed in a graphic, contemporary style on 200gsm acid free, fine grain artists paper.

2cm wide wooden frames in bevelled black, white and unvarnished natural oak. 3cm wide frames in distressed black, white and flat white. Frames supplied with mdf backing board, integrated hanging hook, and Pilkington glass.

Large 25.5x30.5cm (10"x12") with an approx. image size of 18x23cm (7x9")
