Dauphine, Stage 3: One Climb too Many

The final climb of the day saw the peloton driving hard at the front, most likely to shuck the sprinters and their lead out trains.  Apparently, it was working.  One of those to drop off the back (he was hardly alone) was Kris Boeckmans (Lotto Soudal).  I have had the honor of being commissioned to paint Boeckmans winning in Belgium, so I felt I should show the other side of racing.  Chapeau, Kris, on your recovery!

This is a small original watercolor and ink painting that was created 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 www.greigleach.com.  While you are on the site, be sure to check out my other works of art and my two cycling books.  To purchase this particular painting, just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Bear in mind that this is a one of a kind original and once it is gone, it is gone.
