❤ This listing is for 4 people/animals custom watercolor portrait *
( * You can see how accurate is the portrait comparing with the last image that is the original photo.)

Hello! I am Natilles a portraitist watercolor artist from Barcelona. I paint portraits with a very expressive and coloring style. My style is different because the drawing is very realistic, but the color does not, and that's what makes my paintings unique and modern :)

For people who are very hard to surprise I think that a hand painted portrait is the perfect gift. Also for wedding gifts, newborns, birthdays, 50th, 25th wedding anniversary, also paper anniversary (1st wedding anniversary) or memorials it will be a meaningful present.

You can see more examples of my custom portraits below:

You are not buying this portrait: You are buying a portrait 100% personalized. I could paint under your instructions based on your reference photo.

Before or after buying this product (is better before), we will speak through Etsy or email. You can send me the photo that I will use to paint the portrait and also tell me when you need it. Then we talk about the colors you want to use. The high resolution photos allows me to see the finest details and is better to work with and the result is better too.

Closeup photos are good in small and medium sizes (faces and shoulders), half bodies photos (heats to hips) are better in medium sizes and entire bodies photos are good in medium and large sizes.

In my blog I explained with a visual example, the procedure to follow in case you need more information:

The drawing will be very accurate to the picture and I will keep you informed sending photos of every step of the process. Once the painting is done, I'll send you a final photo for your approval and I can make any final adjustments. I really appreciate the criticism. My goal is that you like it so much. I will make all the changes with pleasure and your opinion always helps to make the portrait better.

This listing is for TWO people/animals portrait in front of a white background or background painted with diffuse patches of watercolor. For complex backgrounds (e.g., in a car, on a boat, in a dinning room, in a garden, a cake, etc.) you have to add this listing to your purchase: https://www.etsy.com/listing/246505062/

If you would more or less persons or animals you can revise my shop looking for an item with the number of persons do you need, or use this short cuts:
▶ 1 person / animal
▶ 2 people / animals
▶ 3 people / animals

If you want to add props (like people with butterflies in his hair, or a lot of flowers surrounding the face), or any photomontage, I’m happily available to do it. Also I’m available to paint other sizes or portraits with more people. In all this cases write me and I will create a special item for you.

TECHNIQUE It is painted by watercolor (high quality and of very concentrated and luminous colors). The brands I use are Holbein Artists and Winsor & Newton Artist. I also use pencil to draw.

The PAPER used is Guarro extra cold pressed. It is the best for watercolors, is 100% cotton, white color & extra thickly (350 g.) The maximum size is 27" x 39".

You can choose the COLORS. But there is one restriction: I NEVER paint with the real tones (the picture realistic tones). I can paint with only one color (monotone) or several; that does not change the price. I can help you with the choice if you want.

I send you the original hand-signed by me. This image will be yours forever and I will be able neither to sell it nor to reproduce it. You can not use the painting for advertising, or make copies or use it for profit of any kind. If you want the painting for something like that, tell me before and I happily sell yo the rights and the digital image.

IMPORTANT: Watercolor can not receive the direct sunlight because it will eventually clarify. The sun beams can not touch the paper.
