Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: One for the Road

Shortly after the riders pass through the start finish line they come to the feed zone.  This is were riders can be passed drinks (often with energy gels attached) and on a designated lap be given a musette filled with food to sustain the athletic effort they are undertaking.  The Australian Katrin Garfoot looks over her shoulder realizing she missed her soigneur about eight guys back.  She needn't worry, it will only be about 25 minutes before she can try again.

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.
