Giro, Stage 2: Getting His Jersey

With the peloton breathing down his neck, Daniel Teklehaimanot (Dimension Data) jumped free of his break away companions to claim maximum points at the top of Genna Silana.  By taking the victory at the top he ensured that he would pull on the Maglia Azzurro at the end of the day.  Actually, his efforts on the day had also rewarded him with the lead in the intermediate sprint competition.  His move was cheered on by hundreds of cycling fans lining the summit.

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 start of the Giro d'Italia, I am crowd funding my third cycling art book through Kickstarter.  I could use your support in making this book get made, please consider supporting 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.
