Whoever painted the reproduction below evidently decided to use tones tending more to green than to Hockney's signature blue. It could be a digitally manipulated photo, but that wouldn't explain why the dress has maintained its original color while everything else has been given a hefty dose of yellow. A fun note from the Tate:
Hockney completed this work after two failed attempts at painting his parents, Kenneth and Laura Hockney. They were frustrated when Hockney gave up on previous versions, having spent hours posing for him. However, speaking about their reaction to My Parents, Hockney's sister Margaret said, "Mum and Dad were very proud of it, and felt all the sittings had been worthwhile."
