House Portraits: Information & Pricing

I love to paint buildings of all shapes and sizes. A house portrait can simply be an illustration of the house itself, or it could be just a front door, a tenement building, or even the front garden! As well as house portraits, I can create illustrations of memorable places, such as a wedding venue or a holiday home.

How to order & how it works
The best way to commission a portrait is to send me an e-mail (hello@fionapurves.co.uk) with a few photographs of the home or building you'd like me to paint. The more photographs and information the better! I will then create some rough pencil sketches from the photographs, and I'll figure out the best way to compose the final piece. I'll send you a detailed sketch, and once you are happy with how it's looking, I'll start the final piece. I will then e-mail you a photo of the portrait. There can be changes made at this stage if needed (and if possible!). When you are totally happy with the portrait, I will send you an invoice. Once payment is received, I will post the portrait to you via Royal Mail recorded delivery, kept completely flat and wrapped in acid-free tissue, protected between two sheets of greyboard, and packaged in a hard-backed envelope. 

Turnaround time is between 7-14 days, but if you need something in a hurry just ask! Please also note that orders needed in time for Christmas should be ordered well in advance.
