A watercolour sketch of your houses, hand-drawn by artists in Devon and printed with your personalised text. Painted to order, available mounted or framed.

How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to [email protected] Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google Street View - Go to Google.com, click on ‘Maps’ and enter the address. Click on the street view of the road or drag the yellow stick man onto the map. Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
What do you draw? We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and won’t include satellite dishes, dustbins etc - let us know anything specific in your enquiry. The sky and ground is coloured in our painterly watercolour style and digitally printed. The buildings and foliage are left white.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be sent to you via email for you to check.
Want another style? See our other listings for house portraits, pencil sketches and detailed drawings. We also draw pets, people, sports stadiums, favourite places…

I purchased a five image piece just before Christmas. My item arrived promptly and beautifully sketched. I was very impressed with the time in which I received my proof copy of the images also. I will certainly make a purchase again in the future. Highly Recommend Letterfest!
Beautiful drawings. Will be a wonderful and sentimental Christmas gift for my father.
very pleased with the picture and the recipient loved it.
This was a present for my mums 80th birthday, she was over the moon with it! The drawings were outstanding and we also chose to use the framing option. 100% recommend ! Thank you 🙏
We absolutely loved our 3 house illustration. We actually asked for a customised order picturing our parents' house, local church and village sign for their ruby Wedding Anniversary. We were delighted with the result. Very prompt and helpful communication. Thank you
Our pleasure! Such I great idea to combine the three illustrations like that to tell the story of your parents wedding day. We are always happy to help make an illustration, engraving or art print extra special if we can. Hopefully your idea will inspire others to do the same.
