Tour of California, Stage 7: Wonder Woman/Wonder Man

The Californian cycling fans have turned out in all sorts of costumes to cheer on the pedal men from around the world.  I have seen the Pope, all sorts of animals, and a flag bearing runner wearing a helmet crowned with all sorts of different antlers, but today's Wonder Woman get up has to be my favorite of this year's Tour.  Plus my sister is a bit devoted to Wonder Woman, her Facebook page includes Wonder Woman climbing a flag pole to remove a Confederate flag.  Peter Sagan was proving a very appropriate accompanist for the red caped heroine, riding an incredible ride including even being the first over the final climb while wearing the Green Jersey of the best sprinter.

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was painting using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from Jack Richeson & Company (  This painting along with all of my cycling art, is available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  While you are at the website, be sure to check out my two cycling art books, "Book du Tour: Art of the 101st Tour de France" and, "Art of Cycling: Richmond 2015 UCI Road World Championships".
