Architectural Artist David Johnston, who lives in Petworth, is currently taking commissions for – House Portraits.
David works in Ink & watercolor on quality paper: or Acrylic paints onto canvas. Using either of these two mediums he creates unique portraits of your home taken from emailed jpegs or posted photographs.
There is a choice of two designs. The first is: ‘Classical’ showing the character of your home in its beautiful setting. Note: example – Amberley House.
The second choice is: ‘Historical’ which brings bygone events connected with your house into the picture. Perhaps some fascinating legend brought to life: or simply old rustics busy in the flower garden. Maybe even a moonlight scene with smugglers coming and going.
In fact any myths or stories from the misty past can be fully illustrated within the picture that principally portrays your home. Note: example – Dell Quay.
