House Portraits – The perfect gift from £75
How do we start?
Email to me your vision, and preferred style for your house portrait or any other illustration you would like created – My range is wide and I’m happy to try new things – Essential : Clear photos, especially of people and pets, clearly showing their shapes, characteristics and colours.
You can email all your requirements to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will then contact you to discuss all the details. (I’m happy to talk on the phone if you prefer)
Every picture tells a story and I like to suggest we include elements that help tell this. An event outside the house, a first day at school, garden parties, a prize garden, snowy days, you get my drift. (Past, present, future). It’s imperative that you send clear detailed images of body shapes, their heights, favourite clothing/ornaments, so I can position them within the picture sympathetically.
Included in the price is a preliminary sketch of the commission which you can make changes to before the final work is started. Once you have approved the sketch, which I email to you. I will email you a photo of the final work for your approval. You can see in the examples below, that the sketch has a lot of people outside and that the pub building is quite flat. My client wanted the focus to be on the 2 friends seated and to emphasise it was a corner building. We decided one tree was enough and with a few people seated inside to complete the story.
