Commission a portrait of your favourite shoes

from 195.00

Commission a portrait of your favourite shoes painted by Gabriella in acrylic on birchplywood. Do you have a favourite pair of shoes that you want to remember always even if you can’t wear them any longer? Or perhaps you want a reminder of your wedding shoes even though you will not be wearing them again. Maybe your children have grown out of their first pair of shoes and you want to have a slightly fresher image of the battered and worn shoes you now have!

I’d love to work from the actual shoes ideally to arrange them to paint from, ! will return your shoes with the portrait via Special Delivery. I suggest you post your shoes by recorded post. This refers to the UK only.

If you want to provide photos, or live outside the UK then please take plenty of photos in very good light with a simple wall behind. If your shoes are white/cream wedding shoes please ensure that the background is grey or mid tone ( not white) so that the details of the shoes stand out. If your shoes are dark a mid tone or white will be fine. Just not very dark walls please. Of course if you want me to portray your shoes against a wall paper you have or a pattern you love do please include that in your images. This will cost a little more as there is more work involved if I do not have the actual shoes to arrange.

You can specify the sort of background you want; you can either leave it to me to invent a pattern like background that suits your shoes or state that you want a plain background or even a specific colour, I will do my best to interpret this. On the understanding that colour is subjective and that I aim to make a beautiful painting of the shoes you love and the way light interplays with the surface of the shoes will reveal many colours.

Each portrait is A4 in size and on 4mm thick birch plywood. Your painting will be signed discreetly on the front in acrylic and I will date and sign the wood on the back. There will be plenty of space for you to write a message on the back if you want to. Gift wrapping with a tag and ribbon is also an option for a little extra.

Mens, women’s or babies shoes.
