Portrait Commission Drawing


No heirloom matches a hand-drawn image of the one you love. Traditionalists will treasure the unique and intimate quality of real paper and pencil capturing the likeness of a friend, relative or lover. The perfect gift for someone who has everything - a portrait of yourself or them. Be part of the heritage of portraiture...

  • Choose a photo you love - the person in their prime of life.
  • Tip: no teeth in a subtle smile - a drawing looks better without teeth.
  • Tip: women with minimal make-up look better in drawings.
  • Tip: good resolution and detail helps.
  • Send the photo by email.
  • Within the week the portrait is complete and on it's way to you.

Your portrait will be delivered in a soft white mount board, flattering the drawing and easy to coordinate with a standard frame of 10"X8". You'll quickly and easily find a ready-made frame to finish the portrait or, choose a custom frame from your local framer for a more luxurious result.
