Dauphine, Stage 6: Bardet Attacks!
If I may speak art for a moment. I tried something new in this painting, laying in a background of a bright yellow-green before laying in the pine trees over laying the glowing valley. The technique is similar to Vincent Van Gogh's attempts to capture the light of the south of France and the dawn of Impressionism. I must admit that I am rather satisfied with the result.
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.
