Tour, Stage 7: Alone at the Summit

I feel that this painting most captures the day for Steve Cummings (Team Dimension Data).  As the British rider reached the summit of the Col d'Aspin he was greeted by a hugh Union Jack, waving him on to victory on the stage.  According to the British broadcasting team on NBC Sports Network, Cummings had been passed over for inclusion in the Olympic team representing Great Britain.  I am sure he had the extra joy of winning this stage and thumbing his nose at his Olympic committee.  Cummings gained even more time on the trio behind on his way down into Lac du Payolle.  I will use this as his victory salute painting because it shows what he did to get the win.

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.
