Two Harleys, 9x12" oil on linen panel, ©Diane Mannion
Portrait of my friends, Julie and Joan...on their Harley with Harley, their African Gray parrot. Promised to paint this as a wedding present, glad it's finished before their first anniversary!
At such a tiny scale, it's simply a caricature of my friends, they're actually much more beautiful than this shows. Told them, that if they hated it... I'd paint their house, instead. We'll see.
Technical notes: Limited palette! Used ONLY ultramarine blue, red iron oxide, and white. Just a touch of cad red on the parrot's and bike's tails. And a few glints of cad orange on a light and near windshield.
