can be personalised
A personalised watercolour sketch, hand-drawn from a favourite photograph. Suitable for side or back shots, not available for forward-facing ones which show the face.
Drawn in a freehand flowing line, the black and white portrait is then coloured with watercolour brushes to pick out a few highlight colours. This is our artistic interpretation of your photograph rather than a detailed drawing, we exclude details of the face so is not suitable for photographs where the person's face is fully shown. If the face is partly shown we use only a few lines to indicate eyes, nose & mouth. The poses that work best are looking down, to the side or away from the viewer. See our other styles for more detailed drawings of people including faces.
How do I send my photo? Submit an enquiry after ordering to upload a digital photo. 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 don't include any background details unless selected in the dropdwon. If selected, the focus is on the figures and the background is left sketchy. The illustration is coloured and digitally printed.
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.
