Custom portrait - splatters of watercolor paint

Emma Watson watercolor painting

Hi everyone !

I was working a lot during the past few days to create a range of custom watercolor portraits.
So far there are 4 styles available (yeah!). I will show you my 4 examples. Of course these are only examples of the custom portrait you will get.
My listings (on Etsy) are for personalized portrait using YOUR picture.

-- HOW --
• Buy the listing on Etsy
• Send me a picture of the subject on clear background.
• I will then start to work on your print.
• I will send it to you via e-mail for review.
• You will have the possibility to ask me to change some details.


My favorite is this one of Emma Watson. It's full of details with butterflies on her lips, eyebrows and hairs. Her sweater is made of pastel round watercolor splash.

The listing for a custom portrait like this one is available on my Etsy shop here.
Easy: you just need to send me a picture of the subject.





This portrait was very fun to do. Her Afro hairstyle and smile give a really happy touch to the portrait.
I added some details to the watercolor with cute white stars.
This will be the perfect gift for your girlfriend and child !

You can get yours on my Etsy shop.
Easy: you just need to send me a picture of the subject.

Your profile on an Alfons Mucha's woman painting

I'm very excited about this new custom project !
I'm a huge fan of Art Nouveau, so, of course, I simply love Alfons Mucha's work !
He was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist of the late 19th, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs. His Art Nouveau style was often imitated. The Art Nouveau style however, was one that Mucha attempted to disassociate himself from throughout his life; he always insisted that rather than maintaining any fashionable stylistic form, his paintings were entirely a product of himself and Czech art.

So I was looking at one of his portrait of a woman in profile. I realized that it could be really easy to change the profile line of the woman to create a completely different woman. The cool part will be to use a real woman profile from a photography. (Actually Mucha's himself used photographies of women to create his paintings -during the 19th, yes!)

I tried and here are two of my creations. What do you think? It's crazy to see how it can change this woman!
I was so happy with it that I decided to create custom listings on Etsy. If you want a custom portrait with your profile, check my Etsy shop

Your silhouette on an alfons Mucha's woman painting

For your custom portrait, you will have to send me a profile picture of the subject on clear background. I will then start to work on your print on photoshop.
I will change:
- the profile line
- nostrill
- mouth

Now my goal is to use other paintings of women in profile by Mucha. Like these ones:
