Your house portrait Illustration will be hand-drawn black and white drawing of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars / lampposts, we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We sketch the perspective from the photograph. It’s a simplified drawing but if you want more detail please order our ‘Detailed portrait’ at £70 (see listing to right). The drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. Although the house will be in black and white, we colour the sky duck-egg blue, the grass a sage green, paths stones grey and windows cream. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also coloured. We cannot include people in the drawing, we can include cars and pets for an extra fee.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be uploaded via a customer enquiry for you to check.
