Harley XR750 painted from above in my palette knife style.
Shown at Michael Lichter’s “What’s the Skinny?” invitational show in 2019
Enamel on aluminum
36″ x 90″
Using a loose, palette knife style, this full-size painting of the winningest motorcycle in history, the Harley-Davidson XR750.
I really wanted to create a visual that could express the visceral energy that one gets in the presence of this purpose-built tool for winning races.
This was painted exclusively for the Michael Lichter “What’s the Skinny? “ show at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Race bikes are all about not being any wider or heavier than necessary, really summing up what this show is all about.
The model for this painting was pulled for reference from the Harley-Davidson Museum.
