Painting Number: 6, 7 & 27
19-year-old Hannah knew after scrolling through @ThePaintRoom’s Instagram feed that she wanted a custom commission. She said that even though they were ‘only paintings’, the women looked so confident and free that she wanted to feel the same.
“I love how bold and bright your page is and that you have lots of Instagram stories of your beautiful work… you also made me feel so comfortable after I first messaged you that I knew it was the right decision and I couldn’t be happier that I’ve bought a commission. I’d already seen how amazing other people’s pictures had turned out so I knew I could trust you and would love the final product.”

“I would suggest a self-timer or a video of a range of poses then screenshot the poses you like most from the video- literally just go for it, maybe have a drink before if you’re nervous but the end product is so worth a few nerves in the beginning.”
“I was raped last year and wanted to feel as though I had my body back again. The paintings made me feel amazing and I well and truly have and own my own body again…
…I only felt a dash of nerves at the start, but those nervous feelings were quickly replaced with relief - not only did I have my body back - but I had a beautifully confident looking painting of myself. It genuinely brought me to tears after being sent the picture of the painting, let alone when I received it in person shortly after. If ever I am feeling low or down, I just take a minute to look at my painting and it genuinely makes me feel calmer, happier and more secure with myself and my body. To see such a beautiful and colourful painting look so confident is amazing, let alone when it’s of you! It really helped me feel comfortable in my own skin which I will forever be grateful for.
