It always starts off with quite a bit of pressure (on myself, from myself), to get the initial sketch right, and to then actually get paint to paper. But the final outcome is always so rewarding, and knowing how happy the person who commissioned it will be to have a one of a kind illustration of their home - priceless.
Here are a couple I've worked on recently, one just before Christmas and the following just after. Both were commissioned as gifts - such a lovely present idea!
These sweet house portraits are A5 in size and just £35 (no frame included).
