Commission an original and unique hand-drawn House Portrait
I believe a House Portrait should be so much more than a faithful drawing of a building. It should capture the sense of Home, its charm and its character. It shouldn't be just an architectural illustration but something that not only complements the feeling of Home but actually provokes it.
I produce hand-drawn portraits of homes. They're not digitally transformed from photographs and then manipulated using clever computer software. My work is bespoke and personalised from a professional UK artist. They are freehand pencil drawings on Fine Art paper, mounted and framed if desired. In order to create the drawing of your own home I like to work the graphite under my fingers.
My House Portraits make unique gifts at an affordable price. They could be for a husband to give to his wife, a wife's present to her husband, children's gift to their parents. Perfect for anniversaries, birthdays, at Christmas or just a great way to say 'thank you'.
My drawings make a distinctive gift or memento. Black and white and the myriad of tones in between don't fight with anyone's colour scheme. Customers can choose a frame for me to supply or simply take the mounted drawing and find a frame that they think will go perfectly with its surroundings.
There's no reason for the drawing to be of your current home. It could be the house where you were brought up - the church where you were married or had your children christened - a favourite place that perhaps now only exists in a old, torn photograph. It might be the 'local' where you've spent many happy hours (just as Dylan Thomas did in Brown's Hotel). The portrait can become a special possession, a memory cherished... potentially even a family heirloom.
They make superb house-warming gifts, memorable by comparison to the usual presents given then.
When good neighbours have to say goodbye to each other, what better way to remember them and be remembered?
When sons or daughters leave home a house portrait is a good way for a parent to say 'You'll always have a Home here'.
When sons or daughters leave home to start a new life for themselves the gift of a house portrait to their parents is a great way of saying 'Thanks for the Home you gave me'.
A House Portrait makes a perfect retirement present. It gives each contribution to the collection value and meaning.
