A personalised watercolour sketch of your favourite place, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon and printed with your choice of text.
We can draw a variety of scenes eg: a holiday destination, honeymoon, where you proposed. We draw in a sketchy style to capture the outlines of the view, and colour in our painterly watercolour style. The illustration is personalised with your chosen words.
How to provide a photo
Send us your photo - either upload with the order or email it to [email protected] Or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Or use Google Street View - Go to Google.com, click on ‘Maps’ and enter the address. Click on the street view of the road or drag the yellow stick man onto the map. Use the pointers to locate your house. When you have a good view, click the link icon, copy the link and send it to us.
What do you draw? We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and won’t include satellite dishes, dustbins etc - let us know anything specific in your enquiry. The illustration is coloured in our painterly watercolour style and digitally printed.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be sent to you via email for you to check.
