Doha 2016, Elite Men's ITT: Out in the Desert

Steve Cummings (Great Britian) seemed to be channeling his inner Lawrence of Arabia in today's individual time trial.  The stark desert landscape and hot, dry air couldn't have been a welcome change from the verdant countryside of his home island.  Today's course started out near the unique architecture of Le Salle on the outskirts of Doha eventually bringing the riders back on to The Pearl and the line where every race will finish.  Alas, it wasn't to be Cummings day today, he only managed a 25th place.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  It is only $75 USD and international shipping is available.
