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 watercolour digital sketch of a newborn baby as a gift to a friend. Service was great and feedback was followed on constructively. Loved the outcome, the tailored personalization was great :)
This is an amazing gift! I bought this for my wife after having our first child and I’m so happy it. The quality is 10 out 10. There is some very talented people who work for letterfest!
It's my daughter's birthday today and I gave her the two portraits this morning. She was blown away! They are gorgeous, very lifelike and well worth the money. Thank you :0)
The watercolour was beautiful. Exceeded my expectations and captured the essence of the photo perfectly.
Picture is perfect, a lovely gift to give as a personal touch, have ordered twice and will again, definitly recommended.
