Giro, Stage 15: Running Along

Pierre Rolland (Cannondale-Drapac) was the first to attack on the short steep climb up to the citadel of old Bergamo.  While most of the fans are orderly and don't interfere with the riders or the racing, there are those who will run along side the climbing (and struggling) riders, often weaving about in their costumed silliness.  Today at least, the blue wigged fool didn't jeopardize the race or Rolland's attack.

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.
