Giro, Stage 2: That Didn't Work

Nathan Haas (Dimension Data) jumped free of the peloton on the descent off of the Genna Silana.  He was joined by Davide Martinelli (Quickstep).  Unfortunately for Haas, Martinelli was there more as a break away killer than a fellow opportunist.  He was more interested in making sure that Haas didn't succeed than pushing on together.  Haas looked over his shoulder and was disappointed to see the peloton closing in, despite all of his efforts to get Martinelli to work with him.

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.
