A watercolour portrait of your house…

A watercolour house portrait can make a lovely gift for that special occasion for someone you love, or maybe you are moving and would like a memento of your present home. Whatever the reason, let me know, and I’ll be happy to help.

How it Works

If you email me any photos you have of the house, I will send you back a ‘rough’ preliminary pencil sketch for approval of angle/details. When you are happy with this and we are agreed upon a size and price then I produce a beautiful watercolour portrait of your house! I like to include a nicely cut double-mount which is then cello-wrapped, packed and sent by guaranteed next day signed for delivery.



Dependent upon the size of the painting and complexity of the subject, but for a typical house portrait to a ‘framed’ size of approx. 20″ x 16″ (50 x 40cm) I would ask £295.00 (Image size approx. 15″ x 11″) This would be inclusive of a nicely cut double mount, cello-wrapped (but not framed), packaging and sent by guaranteed next day signed for delivery.


Fast Service

Quick service available , I am used to last minute requests, so try me! (If no urgency I will usually turn around a house portrait within two weeks or so)


I used to have my own Picture Framing business, and I still have the equipment so I can supply paintings framed if requested. But these will be collection only. Glass cannot safely be sent through the post. I speak from negative experience!


Send me either a photo via email, or phone with a description of your house and I can give you a quote.
