How to order a custom watercolor portrait by Natilles

If you want a custom painting portrait you can contact me 🙂 I can paint with watercolor or acrylic to any size.
You can see my works and style on my website

I will explain how to proceed in these cases, with the example of the custom watercolor painting order from Olga Paniagua.

1 – Olga wrote me an email to telling me what she wanted.
She told me she was a great butterflies lover and she wanted a portrait with butterflies around.
She sent me several pictures of her and together we chose the best. It was this: (I think she looks magic)

2 – She also sent me several photos of her favorite butterflies. She really like the monarch butterfly. We decided that it would be best to fill the painting with monarch butterflies in different positions. Example of monarch butterfly:

3  Then with the pictures ready, we discussed about the size and the price. She chose the size 16.5″ x 11,8″ (42 x 30 cm). After payment I started drawing.

4  I drew a pencil portrait with a lot of butterflies around. I send to her a photo by email to knew her opinion. She asked me to remove a few butterflies. So I removed a few. and I sent back this photo:

5 – This drawing was approved! Then I ask to Olga what combination colors she prefer. She left it on my choice. I decided that it could be stunning in warm colors (yellow, red and orange). That’s me going:

6- After several layers of watercolor and watercolor pencils I sent a photo to knew what she thought about it:

7 – In this case she did not ask me to carry out any changes. But sometimes the clients in that step require some arrangements. Glad to do everything necessary to achieve complete buyer satisfaction.

8- I sent the painting to Olga’s home and she received satisfactorily.
