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.
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.

I ordered this as a gift, the service and quality was excellent and I am sure the recipient will be as delighted as I am with it.
I bought this as a gift for my wife. We hate photos of ourselves so thought we’d try one of these. It’s amazing! The detail is great, I love it! Fast delivery and great item! Thank you so much!!
Ordered a watercolour line portrait for a birthday gift. Absolutely delighted with the finished portrait and was a very much well received, thoughtful gift that is also a bit different. Shipping was quick and the team answered my quesries promptly. Would definitely recommend and will use again in the future.
Who doesn’t like a picture which has been lovingly redesigned to produce a lifelong gift
Another success from Letterfest.
I’m sure my son will be delighted.
