Giro Day Seven: Alone in the Rain

Adam Hansen by this point is the sole survivor of the days break away, and unlike most breaks, he went on to win the stage.  His last companion crashed out on the previous descent and Hansen waited for him to catch back on to his wheel.  But Selle struggled on the next climb and then crashed again on that descent so Hansen went on to a solo win of stage 7, the day before his birthday.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard and like all of the work in this series was created with cake watercolors, brushes and paper from www.richesonart.com   Also, this painting and the others are available on my artist website, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
