Need help editing photographs of paintings

I have a series of photo's of artworks which were taken whilst hanging on a wall, I need to remove the shadow from the one side and edit out any blemishes such as pencil marks which are on the wall in the background, basically so it looks as if they're hanging on a plain white wall. They can't be cropped to having no background either.
I've tried blurring and pasting in sections of the wall where there's no shadow, but it doesn't look good. The pictures aren't dead centre either which makes it more difficult.


Thanks alot if you can help me. I'm fine with the basics of photoshop, but something slightly advanced like this I need help on.

Wasn't a request as such, I was asking for advice on how to do it.

Do you think selecting the area around the side of the paintings and blurring inwards from the lighter wall would work to eliminate the shadow on one side?

Not really mate, best to cut out as close to edge as you can and apply to new layer of white background. Soften picture edges with a little blur if you wish.

Don't try remove shadow then. Remove all wall. Cut out painting by pen tool as Paul suggest.
