A personalised watercolour sketch of your home, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon - a perfect gift for Mum this Mothers Day.
We can draw a variety of buildings or scenes - from flats, houses and bungalows, to farms, holiday homes and wedding venues. We draw in a sketchy style to capture the building, and colour in our painterly watercolour style. We include minimal background - the focus is on the building rather than its surroundings.
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.

This is the third time using Letterfest for house portraits , always great communication and they have been more than happy to make any adjustments needed . Great service and product .
Excellent representation of the property.
I ordered a water colour print of my husband's childhood home as a surprise gift for his 50th Birthday. The team were amenable to extend part of the house which was unfortunately cut off the photo I supplied. I decided to pay the extra 3 pounds to receive a proof, and would recommend this option as the artist was able to go back and make some tweaks and changes to the print until I was 100% happy how the added part of the portrait looked.
I must say I was a bit surprised by how small the 'large' portrait was, although the dimensions are given on the order page, in person it does feel smaller than I was expecting (it did however measure exactly as promised). So when framed it makes a smallish piece of art, one that may be better suited to resting on a desk/table rather than hung on a wall.
However having said that my husband was delighted with the image and said it was a perfect rendition of his childhood home. Thank you Letterfest!
We are moving house so the portrait is of our current house. It was a present for my husband and he is absolutely delighted with it. The painting is really excellent and the framing very nice. Thank you.
I ordered this for an 80th birthday/new home gift and it was absolutely perfect. The photo I submitted wasn’t the clearest, so I was really pleased when I received the portrait which was so accurate!
