Giro, Stage 2: Working on the Front

Bora-Hangrohe started the day with all put one of the leaders' jerseys on their shoulders.  Unfortunately for Cesare Benedetti that meant that he couldn't defend his Maglia Azurro, but instead had to work for the team and the Maglia Rosa of his teammate, Lukas Postlberger.  It was the whole team that road on the front keeping the five man break away in check.  The team with the leader's jersey has the responsiblity of setting the pace for the peloton.

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.
