Custom House / Home / Shop / Business / Building Watercolour Illustration
This custom hand-painted watercolor and pencil home, shop, business or building portrait is a perfect housewarming, anniversary, wedding or Christmas gift for a loved one or even for yourself! It will be a one of a kind creation, lovingly painted by yours truly.
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1 // Send me a few good clear photographs of your home, shop, business or building, through either Etsy messages or my email: karen[at]arosecast.com. These photos should be front/straight-on, and include the building’s surroundings and any other relevant details. Close-ups of anything that can’t be clearly seen should also be sent along. If there is something in the photos you don’t want included, just tell me and I will remove it as long as it doesn’t leave a large blank area behind. Everything will be based on these photos, and extra time won't be spent trying to piece things together or trying to change the perspective (for instances, drawing a front-on illustration from a photo taken at an angle, or making up details).
STEP 2 // Tell me what text you would like below the building, and which type of decorative motif to use; olive branch (The Gordon’s example), banner (The Robinson’s example), or calligraphy (Notting Hill example).
STEP 3 // I will send you a simple pencil sketch version of the illustration. From this, you will mention any changes you wish to make (minor revisions only, as illustration will be based on the photos supplied).
STEP 4 // With these minor revisions agreed upon, I will create the final watercolour illustration.
STEP 5 // A cleaned up digital copy of the illustration will be sent as soon as it is complete. Then the artwork will be posted in a protective cellophane bag in a hard-backed envelop.
Illustrations shown are examples of how your painting will look when it is complete. All commissions will be created in a similar style with a similar colouring. Each piece will be A5 sized (14.8 x 21 cm or 5.8 x 8.3 in), and depending on the building, may be either portrait or landscape (agreed with client beforehand). The watercolour paper used is acid-free and the paints are high-quality Winsor & Newton watercolours and gouache. No watermark will be present on the illustration.
Please allow 2-4 weeks for completion. If you have a deadline in mind, please let me know (preferably BEFORE you purchase in case my schedule is full and I’m unable to finish the illustration before you need it). Keep an eye out for emails as the quicker we communicate, the quicker the final piece will be ready.
