♥ I use archival fade-proof ink, transparent and opaque watercolors,
acid-free 140 lb. Arches watercolor paper♥
♥ The portraits aren't matted or framed,
but they are in standard sizes so it's easy to get nice affordable store bought frames♥

♥ The completion time varies ,depending mostly on my schedule of commissions. I update my turnaround time on the little notice underneath my shop banner. I don't like to rush the artwork . If you need a last minute gift or a tight deadline there are gift certificates available in my shop♥

♥♥♥♥♥ TO ORDER♥♥♥♥♥
It's Simple!
First get in touch with me on Etsy.
I prefer that you send me your photo(s) before ordering, although almost all photos will work for a successful portrait. It's best if your photo is clear and detailed and shows the whole building in the angle that you prefer. Try to include some close-up detail shots, especially the doors and windows, the landscaping, the house surface.
You can indicate things you would like added or enhanced (flowers,landscaping,etc) or deleted (trees,cars,etc.) I can make a green summery season even if your photos don't show it.
I will use your photos for the angle/view of the building, the structure, the perspective, and all the details (my favorite part!)

Choose your size preference from the list up on the right. ( 5x7 , 8x10, 11x14 )

Choose Pen and Ink or Watercolor from the list up on the right.
All House Portraits are done first as finely detailed pen and ink drawings. Watercolor is then painted in for the full-color portraits. You can choose to have your portrait left as a pen and ink drawing without color. (The price is the same for pen&ink or watercolor.)

To proceed you can order from this listing with Pay Pal, credit card, Etsy gift card, or personal check. When payment is cleared I will add you to my schedule
