Original HOUSE PORTRAITS by artist Patty Fleckenstein (that's me♥)

A custom "House Portrait" is a great way to help preserve cherished memories of home . Show off your home or special building in a charming original art work . Commission a richly-detailed pen & ink or watercolor portrait for yourself or a unique personalized gift !
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
HOW TO ORDER~~~~~
First contact me and send a photo via Etsy messaging before ordering.
Decide if you would like a pen drawing or a watercolor painting. ALL PORTRAITS ARE DONE FIRST AS DETAILED PEN DRAWINGS. WATERCOLOR IS THEN ADDED FOR FULL COLOR WATERCOLOR PAINTING. You can see many examples of both in my Shop.
Then make your selection from the drop-down lists "SIZE" and "PEN OR WATERCOLOR"
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
ALL ABOUT PHOTOS~~~~
The most important thing is a photo that shows the whole building, to be used as the primary photo.
You will want it to be in the view or angle that you prefer. I use the main photo for the angle,structure and perspective.
Try to have it as clear as possible, although it doesn't have to be a sunny day (sometimes that can be too contrast-y and I need to be able to see the details) or any particular season.( I can add sunshine and the season!!.) If your photo doesn't show detail well I will need additional close-up shots. (Except for the 5 X 7 size which won't show quite as much detail as the larger sizes.) You can send me as many or as few photos as you want. I will likely need to check with you about accurate colors .I prefer that you send me photos rather than links.♥
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
AND TURNAROUND TIME~~~~~
You can see the current turnaround time in my Shop's announcement on the first page under the heading.
The turnaround time depends on my current schedule of commissions, the size of the artwork, and your requested delivery date. Before your order is confirmed I can quote you a completion date. If you need a last minute gift or a tight deadline there are gift certificates available in my shop. I don't like to rush the artwork and I really try to devote time and attention to each individual commission.
