About House Portraits by Joe Sebes

Over 30 years of experience back these beautiful, hand-rendered house portraits. They are ideal for capturing those memories that make up what everyone calls "home." Consider these fine pieces for a housewarming as well as a special holiday, birthday, or any occasion. This is an heirloom to be cherished by all for years to come. Joe has completed commissions of homes world wide – Germany, South Africa, Hawaii, Canada, and England are just some of the locations of homes that have been rendered.

In addition to having this fine piece of artwork hanging in your home for everyone to see, use it on greeting cards, letterhead, or note cards. Even newly built houses can be enriched with future foundation shrubbery and plantings to give it that finished look.

Watercolor and pen-and-ink are beautiful choices, but for a unique look, a sepia wash can be done for the same price as pen-and-ink wash. This gives your portrait a classic feel that is sure to add warmth and nostalgia wherever it is displayed.

For a more delicate look and feel, consider a pencil sketch rendering. The pencil adds a softness that cannot be achieved by the pen and ink.

So, if you think you or that special someone would like to have a unique gift to treasure, take the first step and find out how to order your portrait from the Sebes Art Studio. Gift certificates are also available.

Your are encouraged to see for yourself the beauty that is captured in these portraits. Click over to the Sebes Art Studio Gallery for more of this beautiful artwork.

And for more detailed information about some of the portraits, challenges I've experienced with certain pieces, and tips on how I get the most out of my tools, I invite you to visit my blog, "The Drawing Board."

If you're interested in getting a portrait done of your favorite pet, I also have a website dedicated to capturing our furry family members called YourPetsInPastels.com

Come and get an up-close and personal look at my work. Many times, the photos on the web do not do them justice. Check back soon for additional shows and dates.

Check back for updates to my list of shows that I'll be attending in 2020. I hope to see you at one of them.
