Custom House Portraits
Because everyone's home is their castle!
The ultimate special gift for any house warming, wedding, anniversary, Christmas, birthday or other occasion.
The house portrait could be of your home, a holiday home, the family-run shop, your childhood home, your grandparents home - it is up to you!
Your house portrait will be painted on A3 paper using pen, ink and/or watercolour.
Your portrait is painted in the old-fashioned way, that is, totally by hand. As part of our package you will receive a video presentation of the development of your portrait from start to finish.
Our work is based on photographs provided by you. Please make sure to provide colors of any details if the true colour is not as shown in the photograph otherwise we will paint according to the photograph. Of course, the colour in your finished artwork will not be identical as a wash only is used in our process but we will do our best to approximate the colour shown in your photos.
Once I receive your order together with your photos, the portrait normally takes around 2-3 weeks to complete.
Please note - If you require a portrait for a special occasion -
Please give me the best opportunity of making sure your portrait is ready for your special event by ordering and providing all photographs at least 6 weeks in advance. This will allow enough time for me to complete your painting and for it to be delivered. Obviously we cannot answer for mail delivery times but we will advise you when your package has been sent so you know when to expect it.
Please email me before you order and I will confirm with you whether I will be able to meet your time frame.
