A personalised watercolour sketch based of a favourite photograph, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon. A special keepsake celebrating those moments between a couple- an engagement, anniversary, wedding, or just because!
We can draw up to 3 people, for larger groups please buy our group portrait.
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.
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.
