Ronde van Vlaanderen: You've Got This!

With just eight kilometers left to race, Philippe Gilbert (Quickstep) was being encouraged by his director sportif, Wilfried Peeters.  It was beginning to look like the Belgium National Champion was going to succeed in his very long, hard gamble.  The crash of his main rivals, Naesen, Van Avermaet, and Sagan, had disrupted the chase and given the former World Champion a better chance of taking the victory at the line.  Gilbert had been asking all of the motos for some since of what the time gap to the chasers was, we can assume that was another thing that Peeters had to say to his man.

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.

It seems that the gremlins have reappeared in my interface with technology.  I am unable to upload the artwork to my website so if you are interested in purchase this piece please email me at greigsart@gmail.com.
