This custom house portrait is the perfect way to celebrate 'Our First Home'. An illustrated home portrait or building painting can also make a special housewarming gift or really bespoke decor for your home.

You'll be commissioning a beautiful, original, hand-drawn illustration of your home (or any other building: wedding venue, holiday house, shed?) drawn in pen and ink, then coloured with watercolour paint.

DESIGN PROCESS

I will create your custom illustration from your photos, and am happy to add in extra details (a beloved cat, perhaps, or a riot of blooms on a favourite rose) on request. I can also add a hand-lettered caption beneath the image if desired ('The Smiths' or '41 Acacia Avenue' for example).

Please send your photo(s) as soon as possible via Etsy Message after purchasing the listing so we can get started, along with any other requests or preferences for your artwork. If you are also able to provide an address to be identified on google maps, that's often very helpful. I will send a scan of the black and white sketch for your approval before moving onto the colour and always respond (and rework if necessary) following feedback.

I love adding as much detail as possible to these illustrations, so feel free to inundate me with pictures of all your home's beautiful features. This is my more complex portrait style - please see my other listings for a smaller, sketch style. (https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/225551788/small-sketch-house-portrait-paper?ref=shop_home_feat_3&frs=1)

This is an entirely hand-drawn and watercoloured artwork on A4 300gsm heavyweight watercolour paper, measuring 29.7 x 21cm.

Your original illustration can either be unframed and packaged in a cellophane sleeve, or framed in a beautiful frame that complements the artwork. I use either white or black wooden frames with off-white mounts as standard, chosen to suit the finished piece, but please state if you have a preference. My frames all come with acrylic glaze - just as clear as glass but much lighter and safer to hang (and post!). If you'd like more details about the frames available, please just ask.
