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.

Really impressed with the artistic merit, the convenience of reviewing and amending if required and the courtesy received. Great product at a very reasonable cost..
I liked the drawing, it has arrived very quickly. Just in time for Father’s Day!
Excellent portrait as always. You guys are very helpful in getting in just right. I will be adding more to the collection again for sure.
My friend loved the present. They did a photoshoot with their baby girl and I gave this portrait as a Christmas present for them. They loved it and I did too. Now I want to get one for myself! The result was better than I expected! 🥰 The style, colours they used... all perfect.
I wanted a line drawing with a few washes of colour from a beloved photo and they really captured the feel and mood of the photograph. It’s just what I wanted. Thank you!
