Their are many codes of honor and conduct in the peleton and one of the hard and fast rules is that the team that has the leader's jersey must ride on the front of the peleton. The only variable is when a break challenges another teams rider, or the sprinter's feel that they have a chance for a win. This is Team Astana who's team leader is Vincente Nibali the current wearer of the Maglia Rosa. I was struck by the beauty of the rain drenched forest and the aqua suited cyclist in the fog. This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and like all of the works in this series it is created with cake watercolors, brushes, and papers from www.richesonart.com . This painting is available on my artist website, just follow the link at the end of this post.
