Some may argue that motorcycles, custom or otherwise are not art. That may be the case, but motorcycles are certainly a great topic for art, be it a drawing, painting or photo. I have recently decorated my new home and have been looking for something to put up on the walls and what better than a picture of my all time favourite motorcycle, The Triumph Twin. While on my searches I came across this Triumph Bonneville by Sophie Varela, a french illustrator, and painter, who is based in Paris. Sophie is a freelance artist, with her work appearing in fashion and music magazines. Sophie sent us some details of the peace…
Progress photos, water-colour on paper
“Here are some progress shots of a Triumph Bonneville illustration I had the pleasure to work on it recently.”
“All the elements, the flowers and outlines as well as the motorcycle were worked on traditionally by hand. I started this illustration with a sketch and in addition drew the final line with ink.”
Think it looks great Sophie
