Giro d''Italia Stage 15: An Italian Conversation

Stage 15's altimetry was rather amusing, it was intrinsically flat for the first 205 kilometers and then it went straight up for the last 20 kilometers to finish at the summit of Montecampione.  The day featured a large break of 10 riders, including Luca Paolini (Katusha).  He has just dropped back to his team car to get some food and a little bit of advice on how to get up the beast of a climb that was just down the valley road.  This is an original watercolor and ink postcard measuring 4 inches by 6 inches.  The painting was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from, a wonderful USA company based in Wisconsin.  This painting and indeed all of my cycling art, is available for purchase through my artist website at  For this particular painting you can follow the direct link at the end of this post, but while you are at the website, why not take some time to browse all of the artwork on offer?
