I am proud to present you the finished artwork for the charity auction. Smile! There are more details added to her face and changes were made in the colourpalette, but the original background structure was preserved. It was so much fun to paint and I really love this portrait.
The event, a gala, took place in a beautiful hotel and I had a blast. A delicious dinner accompanied the charity auction, which was hosted by the famous Dutch ice skater Erik Hulzebosch. Ha, how awesome is that?!
I was more nervous than I dared to admit at the time. My nerves were severely tested once it became clear that I had to enter the stage as well… Luckily I didn’t trip (high heels aaah) and I believe I gave a proper introduction to the artwork. The portrait (with many thanks to mr. Hulzebosch who did a splendid job as an auction host) got a new owner in no time. Also many thanks to this new owner, this means the world to me!
All the funds that were raised, will be donated to a program in a medical clinic in West-Africa.
I am very grateful that I got the oppurtunity to help this charity by donating an artwork. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
