House Portraits – The perfect gift from £75
Thinking of commissioning a House Portrait or any other artwork, for yourself or as a gift. Here is all the information you need. Including the process, prices and testimonials.
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.
