Giro, Stage 20: Two Guys, Two Minutes

The last two members of the early break were, Dries Devenyns (Quickstep) and Dylan Teuns (BMC).  The pair had gotten to the valley floor between the last two climbs of the 100th Giro d'Italia with a two minute advantage over the gruppa maglia rosa.  Devenyns may have been looking to help his teamate, Bob Jungels, regain the Maglia Bianca, but Teuns was on the front looking for stage glory for himself.  I have enjoyed seeing all of the pink decorations along the course of each and every stage.  Today it seemed to be the day for the pink pennants to festoon the yards along the roadside.

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.
