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, we exclude details of the face so is not suitable for photographs where the person's face is fully shown. The poses that work best are natural looking moments, rather than smiling directly at the viewer - so looking down, to the side or from behind. For more detailed drawings of faces - see our other listings.

We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and don't include any background details unless requested. 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.

So pleased - looked great and would definitely order from these guys again

Great pic

I love my line drawing artwork. I paid to have the proof sent to me which was great. I asked for a change to be made which was done so quickly and a second proof sent to me. As soon as I’d said I was pleased the art work was posted to me and arrived quickly. A really lovely piece of personal art on the wall.


The portrait we received is amazing. The proof did not look like my grandson at all but after just a few tweeks by yourselves have made it a fantastic likeness and we love it. Thank you x


The 2 photos were beautiful. Love your work

Loved it!

The recreation of my sketch was spot-on and I loved the simplicity of it (the splash of shading). This was a present for my husband and he was touched! Thank you
