A beloved photograph as artistic inspiration

Do you have a beloved photograph, which is perhaps hidden from view on your computer under “travel photos”, that you would love to showcase in your space as a painting?

I often work from my own reference photos as they can act as a starting place. My emphasis lies on the creative interpretation of colour, form, and feeling. Commission work calls for a marriage of my style and interpretation and your feelings of a specific subject.

An individualized theme, idea, and colour palette

Perhaps you like my style but haven’t found an item in my web shop that works for your space?

If you have an idea of a theme, idea, colour palette, and size (or maybe just one of these criteria at this point) and are looking for a painting for your space, my commission services may be right for you.

Case Studies

“Friend in Italy”, 2015.

This commissioned painting (acrylic on canvas, 140 x 100 cm/55.1 x 39.3 in.) is based on a photograph of a friend during a holiday in Italy. I made a first painting of the scene (much smaller and vertical) for a high school art project. Years later, based on seeing it in my portfolio, I was asked to paint the scene on a larger scale and horizontal. This was a unique chance to experiment again with the dramatic shadows on the ground and magical light streaming through the tree’s leaves.

“Blue Sunset”, 2020.

This painting (acrylic on canvas, 70 x 50 cm/27.6 x 19.7 in.) is an example of a commissioned artwork based on an individualized theme. The customer had a theme and colour palette in mind initially. We discussed this as well as the mood and size that would fit the destination space. I write about this experience working on commission in one of my blog posts.

Testimonials

“I was very pleased that Laura made this large 140 x 100 cm painting–based on an earlier work that I saw in her portfolio–for our living room in 2015. I especially appreciate that Laura took into consideration how the colours of the painting would work in our specific interior.”

— Isabelle De Proost, Antwerp.

“A few months ago I commissioned a painting from Laura. It was my first time commissioning an artwork, so you can imagine I was a bit nervous about the process.

Laura did such a tremendous job of guiding me through the process. She gave great suggestions on colours and themes that would suit the space designated for the painting, which was much appreciated by the art newbie that I am.

And, most importantly, I absolutely love the painting she made! Her sea landscape has been up on my wall for a few months now, and I am still in love with its colours. In the end she perfectly captured the ‘vibe’ I was going for.”

— Juno Hautekiet, Brussels.
