Hand-painted on either A5* or A4* 300gsm cold-pressed watercolour paper (which has a slight texture and off-white colour), using Winsor & Newton professional paints, a bespoke watercolour house or venue painting is perfect to frame* and display in your home or gift to a loved one. You also have the option of adding a digital version to your order, meaning you can print your bespoke watercolour illustration yourself as many times as you like for things like personalised Christmas cards or your own unique wedding/event stationery.
*The original painting will come unmounted and unframed, ready for you to display however you choose. Sizes stated are the approximate paper size – the artwork will be slightly smaller to allow for a margin around the edge.
How it works…
- Place your order through my site shop, as you would any ‘off the shelf’ product, selecting the options you want. Please choose whether you would like the sky to be painted or left clear/white paper. Pay careful attention to the email address you use at checkout, as this will be the address I send your proof(s) to.
- You then need to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) 1-3 good quality photos of the house or venue, within 48 hours of placing your order. Please send the photos from the same email address you used at checkout, and make sure there is at least one clear photo of the building from the angle you would like me to paint it, as I will use this as a direct reference for your bespoke painting. I will reply to let you know I’ve received the photos and ask any follow up questions if needed.
- Within 2-4 weeks I will email across an initial PDF proof with a sketch of your bespoke commission for you to approve or ask for tweaks. Once approved, I will then paint your commission and email across a final PDF proof of the finished piece within 1-3 weeks for you to approve.
- Once the final proof is approved, we’ll then arrange the best date for delivery. I will carefully package your original painting, and it will be posted to you via Special Delivery (Next day by 1pm). If you have also ordered a digital version of your bespoke illustration, I will email across your files (JPG and EPS) within 7 days of final proof approval.
Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to chat about your commission, or ask any questions, before placing an order. Please also take a look at the ‘Bespoke Commissions via site shop’ terms within my Website Terms for more details (including information on things like copyright and digital file specifications).
Please note: I don’t paint people, and I rarely paint animals. If you would like a pet included in the commission, please contact me directly (don’t order through my site shop) as there will be an additional fee and we’ll need to arrange things separately.
Bespoke Commissions via my site shop are for personal use only. If you would like to commission a piece as a business, please contact me directly.
Ordering as a gift?
Well aren’t you lovely! Please ensure you enter your own email address at checkout, as I will use this to send proof(s); but if you’d like me to post the finished piece directly to your gift recipient, simply enter their delivery address at the checkout. I will include a little note to say you’ve sent them a gift. You can also add a gift message for your recipient using the box near the top of this page and I’ll print it out and pop it inside their parcel.
Please note: each order can only be dispatched to one address so, if you would like to deliver items to multiple addresses, you will need to order each item separately.
Dispatched within 3-6 weeks.
Please see my Website Terms for more information.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current situation, Royal Mail delivery times may vary. If you have placed an order and are concerned by how long it is taking to arrive, please contact me: email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you, Kerri x
Note: Sometimes emails from me (and my shop) end up in your junk/spam folder – please check there once you have placed an order and you are waiting for email confirmation.
