A personalised watercolour sketch based of a favourite photograph, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon. Celebrate your unique relationship with your pet in this gorgeous drawing.
We can draw up to 2 people and 2 pets, 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.
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.
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.

Portrait was ok, perhaps not as good as shown on website. Nevertheless acceptable.
We gave one of these portraits to our friends as a wedding gift and they LOVED it! The detail, colour and size was perfect and nothing was overdone. We were so impressed with how amenable and friendly the team at Letterfest were and they made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be using them again for gifts in the future!
