On The Road

14 April 2007 6 comments

Finished Ned and Co today.
Just have to sign and varnish...
1.5m x 1.7m
acrylic/gouache on
gallery wrapped canvas
so just inside the deadline
for the 16th April....
I think I'll do this
as a print at Zazzle...
I know my son wants
one for his bedroom
and I've become quite
partial to this one too...
normally this wouldn't
have appealed to me but
I have learnt a lot
about Harleys and of course
I have always loved
Ned Kelly's
quote "Such is Life"...

next..... 2 huge full/length
portraits to get back to and finish..

See my gallery at Zazzle

    Wow - Ned and friend look fantastic. I'm not a Harley person either, but this looks great, very "Easy Rider"ish.

    I used the poster from easy rider as part of my original photo reference to make the photoshop composite...this was at the client's original request to put a biker in a painting with Ned Kelly..
