Buildings are one of my favourite things to draw, so naturally I welcome commissions for home and building portraits. You can have a look at some of my past work above to get an idea of the style of work you would receive.
How much will it cost?
A commission for a single home or building portrait is £180 for A4 and £225 for A3 exc. P&P.
This is for an original, hand-drawn, pen and ink artwork on archival paper, with a watercolour background. Please note, you can opt out of the watercolour background if you would prefer.
Prices exclude the cost of postage, you can choose whether you pay for tracked delivery or standard first class. International shipping is available at cost price. All artworks are packaged carefully in a hard backed envelope and plastic cover to avoid damage.
What will I receive?
The price above is for an original, unframed, signed and dated artwork. The work will not be reproduced, so you will own the only copy.
How long will it take?
Depending on my workload, I can usually produce home portraits within three weeks of the order date and deposit payment. This may be longer around Christmas, but I'm happy to provide you with a predicted timeline.
How do I make an order?
Get in touch! You can either use the contact form here, or send me an email. Please include at least two or three photos* of the building you would like me to draw, plus the address so I can research additional reference materials.
We can then discuss what you would like and confirm any details. I will also confirm the price of your artwork (this may vary from the standard prices above if you require additional elements).
If you are happy to proceed, you will then be asked to pay a deposit of 40% of the agreed price, and once cleared, this will secure your booking and the commitment to work towards a particular deadline.
Once completed, I will send you a low res file of the artwork to confirm you are happy.
You will then be invoiced for the remaining balance plus the cost of postage and your portrait will be carefully packaged, before making its way to you in the post!
Take the photo in consistent natural light to ensure your home is in focus, and clear with no dark shade/bright light. Please avoid using flash for the same reason.
Try to get photos showing your home from several angles. It's useful for me to see more than the final piece will show to ensure an accurate portrayal.
If you can provide additional images of any foliage and plants, I'd be very grateful.
Please ensure the photo is a high resolution – an iPhone camera (7 and above) is usually fine, but the clearer the better.
