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 a picture for a Christmas present, it’s just lovely and everything I was hoping for. The changes a requested to make to the draft were done promptly and were just what I had asked for. I’m very excited to give this gift at Christmas. Thank you.
I ordered a portrait for a 30th birthday present! I was over the moon when it arrived and it went down even better as a gift! Thank you so much.
A fantastically personal gift for Father’s Day.
Wendy was fabulous as sending out proofs. The five was so warmly received and it now hangs pride of place in our home.
Thank you Wendy for being so great at what you do! Your work is great!
From start to finish the entire experience with Letterfest was amazing. Great communication, friendly helpful staff not to mention an absolutely stunning watercolour line portrait. Would highly recommend and will use again. Thank you
Really pleased with the picture.
