Our personal home illustrations are painted by hand in watercolour on premium watercolour paper, and delivered either as an original painting or as a digital file package.

These paintings take from 4-6 weeks dependent on the complexity of the subject. If your project is time-sensitive, please email for rush order options or a more customised turn around time.
How it works
1. Choose your preferred size.
2. Upload your photo or compressed photos. Photos must be clear & bright.  The house will be illustrated from same perspective as shown in the photograph so please include the angle that you would like represented. If possible include some close up and shots as we love to capture all the details.
3. Include any notes on what you would like included or removed from the photo, for example, include the family pet on the porch or remove the dustbin!
4. I create a pencil sketch for your approval.  This is an opportunity to include things you might have forgotten, like your cat in the window or your favourite cherry blossom in the front garden. The pencil is always the stage before paint so only minor edits can be made. A redraft would incur a fee.
5. Once I have your approval on the pencil sketch, I start the painted version. Once the illustration is finished, nothing can be altered, this is a physical illustration. If you wish to change anything after the painting stage, there will be an additional charge.
6. We keep a scan of your painting so if you would like to add text or personalisation to your order please see the option in the drop down. We keep this on file so feel free to order home stationery, moving cards or even personal Christmas cards to your order now or at a later stage! (release and printing of our artwork is not permitted elsewhere)
The final product is a watercolour painting completed on high quality heavy-weight paper and signed by the artist.  Each piece is carefully packaged in a clear sleeve inside a rigid mailer envelope and sent via courier for safe delivery.
