A bespoke sketch of your favourite place based on a photo provided by you - a beach, city, or landmark. A perfect memento of a trip, honeymoon or special memory.

About the illustration:
- Illustrations are handrawn black & white drawings outlining the view - this is a simplified sketch not an exact copy. For more detail order our Detailed Portrait for £70.
- We will NOT include cars, people, pets, or unattractive elements eg: satellites, bins, for sale signs etc.
- Drawing will be portrait or landscape that best suits the image. The view is a black & white outline with our usual colour palette of duck egg blue, sage green, dove grey and stone for areas of colour. We leave the focus of the illustration black and white to stand out.
Handrawn illustration, coloured and digitally printed in a graphic, contemporary style with offset block colours on 200gsm acid free, fine grain artists paper.
We mount all the illustrations in a high quality bevelled white mount and also offer contemporary wooden frames from £24 - Black (2cm wide), white (2.5cm w), oak (2.5cm w), painted/limed white where you can still see some wood grain (3cm w), all supplied with Pilkington glass and a mdf backing board. The extra large frames have a shabby-chic feel with a distressed paint effect, showing the grain beneath with integrated hanging hook, ready for display. These larger frames are glazed with perspex for safe delivery. We use a high grade Quinn Perspex with perfect optical qualities (so it looks completely clear) and are UV stabilised (so they won't discolour over time).
