Portrait Painter, Caroline de Peyrecave, was commissioned by the Coldstream Guards to paint Dougie's portrait in 2010. This stimulated an interest in soldiers and their families suffering the effects of war and a desire to do something for them. She has now launched WARpaint, an initiative for which she will paint a selection of life size, full length paintings of soldiers, which together with some smaller sketches, will form a exhibition in central London, followed by an auction of paintings with the proceeds going towards charities, of which DDMT will be one.
Caroline hopes that in doing this she will raise awareness of the effects of war on soldiers and their families as well as raising funds to support them. We will keep you posted with news of the Exhibition but in the meantime to find out more about Caroline and the WARpaint project please visit her site.
