Ronde van Vlaanderen: Giving Chase

The duo of Fabio Felline (Trek-Segafredo) and Dylan Van Baarle (Cannondale Drapac) hit the bottom of the Taaienberg with a lead of about thirty seconds on the peloton, but trailing the lone figure of Philippe Gilbert (Quickstep) by almost a minute.  Like E3 Harelbeke last week and Paris Roubaix next, the Ronde van Vlaanderen is punctuated with steep cobbled climbs lined by screaming cycling fans, many whom have spent the day enjoying the fine beers of Belgium.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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.
