Richmond 2015 UCI Worlds: Over Cooked the Corner

With the roads much dryer than was feared as we all went to bed last night, there were far fewer crashes than had been feared.  Poor Paola Munoz (Chile) just plan overcooked the corner swinging back on to Broad Street.  She ran out of road surface and fell into the attractive plantings along the median of the road.  While the plants may have been soft, the bricks that line the planting beds certainly is not.  Fortuantely, Munoz quickly grabbed her bicycle and jumped back into the race.  This is no sport for the feign of heart, one has to be willing to take quite a bit of pain to succeed.

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.
