Capture the character and beauty of your home, business or vacation property in watercolour, oil, pen & ink or pencil sketch. Create a treasured heirloom that will evoke memories of the best of times for generations to come.

How It Works

1. Please take lots of photos of your building, maybe vary the angle of viewing slightly to see some different details. Take some long shots and take some closer shots as well. Let me know the principle view that you would like to have illustrated. Don't be afraid to include some trees, just be careful that they don't block out too much of the building.

2. Also take some closeup detail shots of any darker areas, doors, windows, things that might be of interest, gingerbread woodwork, flower pots, ornaments on the lawn etc.... The more visual information the better the painting will be.

3. If you are taking digital photos, then please keep the files large to retain as much information as possible so I can enlarge the photo when looking at details. It would be best if you have taken several shots, to then burn them onto a CD and mail me the CD. Save the photos as JPEGs would be fine. Regular prints from a SLR camera are fine too of course, though they don't tend to hold as much detail as digitals.

Include the Family Pet

Want to include the family pet(s)? This can be done, but will cost a little extra depending on how much work is involved. It could be as little as only $50 more. Call me and we can discuss it.
