Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Dutch Cornering

If you have spent anytime reading my blog posts over the years, you are aware how much I love titles that have a play on words.  In this case, the title is a subtle reference to the famed, or perhaps infamous, Dutch Corner on the Champs Elysees on the final day of the Tour de France.  The Dutch fans are quite robust.  Even here in Richmond I saw Dutch fans dressed in bright orange costumes festooned with the red, white and blue flag of the Netherlands.  Yara Kastellin did her best to make her countrymen proud but was unable to find a step on the final podium.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  The paintings are for sale each day at the Downtown Fanfest in the Greater Richmond Convention Center at 5th and Marshall Streets in Richmond, VA.  There are originals and two different sizes of prints being offered for sale starting at $20.00 USD. Eventually, they will be available through www.richmond.com.
