Custom House Portrait in Pen and Ink


Custom House Portrait in Pen and Ink



These are portfolio samples of pen and ink and full-color custom house portraits. If you would like a custom house portrait of your home, church, wedding venue, business, or of a childhood or ancestral home, please contact me. Custom house portraits make great gifts for those family members who already have everything, and they’re perfect for new home purchases and real estate closings.

Procedure: I accept payment upfront.


Once you’ve placed your order, please send your high resolution photographs to my email address at A high resolution photo is 300DPI. To check the resolution, right click on the photo and scroll down to properties. Click Properties and then go to Details. Under Details, go to Images and look at the horizontal and vertical resolution. 96 DPI is web quality. It’s great for fast uploads, but doesn’t have a lot of detail. 300 DPI is the best to work with. I can work with lower resolution, but may need to email you to ask for some additional photos to focus on important details.

I will send a pencil drawing for you to approve before I start inking. Once I have your approval, I’ll start the inking process.

Color is added with Prismacolor Premiere colored pencils if desired.

A custom house portrait typically takes 1-3 weeks to complete depending on the size, the complexity of the piece and my schedule. The item ships in a complementary black or white mat, your choice. Free shipping to the Continental United States only.

Please do not wait until the holidays if you want to place a Christmas order. December is my busiest time and I usually cannot accept any Christmas gift orders after Thanksgiving.
