Giro Day Eight: Alone Against the Clock

The time trial is a time for big changes in the overall standings in any race, particularly a multi stage race like the Giro d'Italia.  This is one of the favorites and native sons Vincente Nibali riding for the Kazakstani team, Astana.  While his ride was not enough to win the stage it was enough for him to become the fifth wearer of the Maglia Rosa and the third Italian to have such an honor.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcards, and like all of the works in this series was created with cake watercolors, brushes and papers from www.richesonart.com .  This work is available for purchase at my artist website.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
