About the illustration:
Your illustration will be hand drawn black and white sketch of the property, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don’t want eg: cars or lamp posts, and we won't include dustbins, satellite dishes etc. We will sketch the view from the photograph (ie the same perspective). It’s a simplified drawing of the house but if you want more detail we also offer a detailed portrait version. 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 stone or grey and windows cream. Bright paintwork such as front doors or painted concrete will also coloured.
If you've asked for a digital proof, your illustration will be uploaded via an 'order enquiry' for you to check.
