An ideal wedding gift or present - commission an original hand-painted double 'head and shoulders' portrait from a treasured photograph.
Commission a stunning original portrait from your favourite photograph - or selfie! - by a professional illustrator. Everybody has a favourite selfie or 'couple' photograph - and I'd love to transform it into a unique piece of contemporary art.
This is a hand-drawn image using traditional drawing materials - not a computer generated drawing. I use light-fast industry standard graphic pens and high quality acrylic paints.
As this is a bespoke commission, please allow up to 7 days for the image to be designed, drawn and despatched. All you need to do is send me a high quality image which you can upload after placing your order via an 'order enquiry'. If the image includes more than the head and shoulders, I can digitally crop it and send you an example of what the new composition will look like.
Please can you ensure that the photograph is clear and not too pixelated as it is difficult for me to achieve an accurate resemblance from poor quality images. If you are unsure if your photograph is clear enough, please feel free to upload the image as a customer enquiry for me to check and I'll get back to you usually within a few hours.
Please note: if you are interested in commissioning a full figure portrait please see my other listing.
Select from a variety of vibrant background colours to suit personal taste and home colour schemes.
If required, hand-lettering can be added to make this gift absolutely unique - any phrases, names, dates, places, lyrics can be carefully added to the design (up to 35 characters). If you'd like to use this option, please remember to click on ''add personal text'.
Please note that the portrait is unframed. But as it is drawn on a standard size of paper (A2, A3, A4), framing options are readily available elsewhere.
A2 portraits will be carefully rolled between acid free paper and shipped in a large reinforced postal tube. A3 and A4 portraits will be sent in a flat board backed envelope, with the image sandwiched between 2 additional sheets of cardboard.
PLEASE NOTE: To make sure that you're happy with the portrait, I will also upload an intitial draft of the drawing (it will be uploaded into the enquiries section for the order). After this, you will be able to suggest any alterations that you might want.
Drawn on artist-quality heavyweight Bristol Board (250gsm) using fade-proof, industry standard graphic pens. Background colour is added using light-fast acrylic paint.
