Commission me to make an original one-off painting of your home (or that of a loved one!). I’ll make a sketch from photos you send me. (I can only work from photos you’ve taken or ones you have permission from the copyright holder to use – it is possible on occasion to use street view but it’s not ideal!) See the gallery below for examples of completed house portraits.
Standard house portrait options are:
Small: 10 x 14cm, mounted to 20x25cm (8×10 inch) £55 including UK delivery.
Medium: 17 x 25cm, mounted to 30x40cm £85 including UK delivery.
These prices don’t include frames.
Your painting will be made on 300gsm cold pressed 100% cotton Arches watercolour paper using Uni-Pin Fine Liner Pens and Windsor and Newton Professional Watercolour Paints.
Photos work best if they’re taken from straight ahead, directly in front of the house. (I realise that’s not always possible if there are trees or hedges or walls in front, if that’s the case, choose the best angle). I will only work from photos that you’ve taken or where you have written permission from the copyright holder to use them. If you have any requests for things to leave out; such as bins or cars, or small things to add in, like plants and flowers, then include those in your message. I’ll make a preliminary sketch and then send it to you for your approval before adding details and colour. Any changes requested after this point will incur further charges.
Orders will be sent by Royal Mail, packaged flat in a robust cardboard envelope. Allow a maximum of 4 weeks from your reference photos being accepted for your painting to be shipped. The artist reserves the right to refuse a commission for any reason. Copyright and full reproduction rights remain with the artist.
