Color Conte Crayon Portrait

A hand-drawn family portrait is an Orvis customer favorite—now available in color. Choose the number of subjects: one, two—or the entire family. The very talented portraitist Diane Morrow creates these one-of-a-kind works in color Conté crayon, a technique first used in France in the 1700s. Just send a photo 3" x 5" or larger to receive a 16" x 20" portrait sent to you ready to mat and frame, or we'll professionally mat and frame it for you. Photos are returned. These family portraits are individually drawn by the artist and the work cannot be rushed.

Just what I was looking for,

"Earlier this year I came up with the idea of having portraits created as Christmas presents but could not find anyone or place that was reasonably priced. I received the fall catalog with the Conte portrait on the back cover. I had some questions which were quickly handled by Orvis customer service acting as intermediary between me and the artist. I ordered two color portraits: one unframed of my 4 year old granddaughter for my daughter and one framed 3 person for my son. The 3 persons were of my husband, my son and my grandson all at the age of 2 1/2 or 3. I was extremely pleased with both and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a timeless and unique portrait."

"I ordered this for my fiancee using a pic from our engagement photo session. I did not know what to expect and was a little apprehensive. Well let me just say that the sketch came out perfectly. Please be aware that it takes 6-7 weeks before you receive your order but it is well worth the wait. The picture was framed elegantly and makes the most ideal gift for someone you love. Words cannot express how happy I am with this purchase and am definately considering another as a future gift."

"The Portrait of my granddaughter was beautiful. I had it done for my son and daughter-in-law for Christmas. They were so happy with the portrait. The artist captured my little granddaughter exactly and made it a wonderful gift."

"Uploading the colored photo was really easy. The artist was able to take a 4x6 photo and recreate my daughter's image - even capturing her dimples! Great job; highly recommended to anyone wanting something alittle different!"
