I often remove or add features for people, such as taking away garbage bins and altering the season so that the garden is in full bloom!

All we need to begin is a high resolution photograph of the house in question, taken from the angle you would like it painted. Then I will create a line drawing, you will approve it (or add up to 2 rounds of changes). Once the drawing is on paper and painting has begun, there is no opportunity to move things around because watercolour is a permanent stain on the watercolour paper and cannot be painted over or lifted off (good thing I know what I am doing! ha!). Once it’s complete, I will send you a scan or photograph of it for final approval!

There is a detailed explanation of the pricing and steps involved in a house portrait commision here.

Included in the pricing for the 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 sizes is a digital file for you to print extra copies. I am also happy to make extra copies, but we would have to arrange that separately (I am happy to provide quotes if you email me at info@amandafarquharson.com).

Timeline:

It can take a month or more to go through the process of emailing back and forth to select an image, reviewing sketches, transferring the drawing and finishing the painting. Sometimes I already have a list of commissions in the works, so if there is a rush or a deadline, please let me know!

Materials:

140lb or 300lb hot press watercolour paper (depending on availability and how far it needs to ship)
