Giro, Final Stage: Racing Along

The final stage of this Giro d'Italia began on the formula one race course in Milan.  It seemed a fitting gesture as the time trial specialist would be zooming around the 29 kilometer of the individual time trial.  I was taken with the rather clever paint job on the warning track of the raceway.  Normally the markings are red and white, but I guess they couldn't resist the opportunity to fly the Italian flag (as it were).  Andrey Amador (Movistar) use the same strength he has employed in the serivce of his captain to post a respectable time.

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.

With the racing of the 100th Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in helping this book get made, please consider backing the project here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1335072134/art-of-cycling-100th-giro-ditalia.  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included. With Kickstarter, if there is not a 100% funded, no one is charged a dime, and the project recieves 0% funding.
