I am thrilled to announce that I have secured the portrait job of a lifetime, and will use it to raise thousands of dollars for environmental conservation causes.
I will be painting the portrait of environment icon and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, after him giving me personal permission! Yep, you read it right!!!
I plan to auction the piece off and raise thousands of dollars for a cause close to my heart.
My recent press release about this project can be found right here!
I wrote to Mr Attenborough, asking him to sit for a portrait.
I was stunned when the 94-year-old replied with a handwritten letter, giving me the go-ahead to paint him. He declined to sit personally.
Instead, he suggested I use a photograph sourced from online for the work, which I am absolutely proud to do.
It will be a huge undertaking for me and I will spend more than 500 hours painting the piece. It incorporates landscapes and images of animals from work by Scottish photographer and cinematographer Doug Allan.
His book Freeze Frame: A Wildlife Camerman’s Adventures on Ice will provide the inspiration.
I am itching to get started on this project. ✨
Lots of love, Carla x
