Whether it’s brand new or wonderfully familiar, a home is
always going to be the place where the best memories are made.
A stunning hand-drawn architectural portrait is a great way to celebrate a home, whether it’s yours, a friend’s or a family member’s. It’s the perfect way to capture the character of a home; ideal to commemorate moving in, to celebrate a family event or mark a special anniversary.
Or just because you love living there.
Try to ensure the size of the image is a big as possible and that I would be able to cut around the person/people/pet without losing anything. A 5 megapixel camera or bigger on full resolution should take a good enough image but I will confirm it is suitable when you send it.
You then need to browse the Formats page to decide whether you would like a framed or unframed canvas or a framed or unframed print. If you choose a framed option think about what colour frame would be suitable for where the print will hang.
Also decide if you would like to add some personalised text to the print. On the Formats page you will see the font options for your text so think about what style you would like your text to be and also what you would like it to say.
Submit your order - When you are happy that you have everything that you need please either purchase the option from my shop page or complete and submit the order form on the Commission page. I will be in touch soon afterwards.
If you would like to give a house print as a gift but would rather the recipient made all the choices then why not order the voucher option? It’s an easy way to give something very special to a friend or family member. I will explain to them what photographs they need to take and what the process is when they redeem the voucher. What a lovely surprise!
Take or find a photograph of the house you would like drawn. This will need to be emailed to me after you submit your order. If you have any difficulty getting a photograph without cars or other things in the way don't worry because I can use Google Streetview to fill in any gaps.
You might also need a photo of you or your friends, family or pet if you would like this addition to the drawing. You will need permission to use the photographs so please ensure that if a friend or family member takes them they are happy with this.
