Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Closing the Gap

The peloton was in no mood to let anyone escape although there was attack after attack.  This time it was Monika Zur (Poland) who was reeled back in by the American lead peloton.  At this point the group was headed back down Broad Street after their loop around the Monuments and the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.  I remember when the tower on the Seigel Center was built, I never thought I would see it being broadcast around the world.   VCU is where I studied to refine my art education and start the process of becoming a professional artist.

This is an original small watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  These paintings are created live while watching the races through a feed provided by the Richmond 2015 Worlds organization.  For two more days, you will be able to watch me create the works live at the Fanfest area at 5th and Marshall Streets near the finish line.  You can also purchase either the originals or one of two different sizes of prints while you are there, or later at www.richmond.com.
