Capture a special moment - a personalised watercolour sketch based on a favourite photograph, hand-drawn by artists 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, we exclude details of the face so is not suitable for photographs where the person's face is fully shown. The poses that work best are natural looking moments, rather than smiling directly at the viewer - so looking down, to the side or from behind. For more detailed drawings of faces - see our other listings.
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 dropdown. 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.
Want another style? See our other listings for more detailed detailed drawings. We also draw pets, houses, wedding venues, favourite places…
