Tour of Britain Stage 4: Sky Knows What to Do

After yesterday's blistering time trial by Bradley Wiggins, Team Sky is in the all too familiar position at the front of the peloton setting the tempo and chasing down break aways.  Most of the team spent the lion's share of the Tour de France out front in the wind, and now have come home to lead the 2012 Tour de France winner around his native tour.  Tuck in behind Team Sky are the teams of two of the sprinters, but since each have one of their own in the break up the road, they are waiting to see if Sky can bring them back.  A team will not chase down their own man if they don't have to.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard that was created using cake watercolors, brushes and paper from the fabulous art supply company, www.richesonart.com  In addition, this work is available for purchase through my artist website,  just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of the 2013 Tour of Britain.
