For a unique christening gift why not commission a beautiful personalised illustration of the church, hand drawn by portrait artists working in North Devon.
The drawing is clean and contemporary with the sky and surroundings picked out in muted colours and can be personalised with a message - choose from three typefaces (script, handwritten or modern sans-serif) eg: James Oscar / Christened at St Michael's Church, 5th July 2013.
How do I send my photo? Submit an enquiry after ordering to upload a digital photo or send us a website or google street view link. Upload other photos one at a time to show us more detail or any extras you want including. Alternatively you can email your image to [email protected] with your order number.
What do you draw? We sketch from the perspective in the photograph and won’t include dustbins etc - let us know anything specific in your enquiry (eg: if you want to exclude the gravestones). We will draw portrait or landscape according to the shape of the building. Once drawn, we'll colour the illustration on the computer. We leave the building black and white to stand out from the sky and landscape, printed in duck-egg, sage and stone (we’ll also colour bright paintwork or painted stone).
Can I check what you’ve drawn? Yes - just select yes to a digital proof in the order from, and we’ll upload a proof via a customer enquiry for you to check and make any changes to.
