Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 1: A Surprising Time

I have painted the Paris-Nice race for several years, so I decided it was time for a change.  I am sure those who are riding in Tirreno-Adriatico are pleased to be missing the snows that fell on stage 3 of the Race to the Sun.  T-A got underway with a Team Time Trial and saw Johan Le Bon lead is FDJ team across the line to claim a surprising early lead in the race.  The first man to cross the line on the winning team would also be the first to wear the Blue Jersey of race leader.

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.  In addition this painting and all of my cycling art, is available for purchase through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  And yes, international shipping is available.  Just follow the direct link at the end of this post to get your piece of artwork of the Tirremo-Adriatico.

Be sure to look up my recently published book, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships"  You can purchase your copy online at www.artofcycling.bike or ask for it at your local bookstore.
