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.

If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be sent to you via email for you to check. We offer up to 3 amends to your original drawing. For further changes there will be an additional charge.

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.


Our frames are all handmade in the UK from solid wood with a 2cm wide profile- choose from 3 styles (see image thumbnail for colours). Supplied with integrated hanging hook and Pilkington glass.

Watercolour line illustration

Was happy with the final result, 100% opt for a proof! The first one was not right at all but we did a couple of tweaks and I was happy. Process was easy. So we’re the recipients :)

70th Birthday present

Ordered 2 prints of grandchildren for a birthday present and have been very pleased with the prints I chose to have proofs which turned out to be money well spent as made a couple of changes The final print was excellent and I am sure will go down well when the gift is given on that special day

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.
