can be personalised
A personalised watercolour sketch based of a favourite photograph, hand-drawn by artists working in Devon.
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, it has minimal facial features so is not suitable for face-on images.
What type of photo is suitable? We sketch minimal features using only a few lines so the poses that work best are looking down, to the side or away from the viewer. If the face is included in the sketch we draw a few simple lines to illustrate the eyes, nose and mouth. See our other styles for more detailed drawings of 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. 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.
Want another style? See our other listings for more detailed detailed drawings. We also draw pets, houses, weding venues, favourite places…
