Giro, Stage 7: Stretching Out

The peloton was facing yet another long day in the saddle for Stage 7.  They would cover another 224 kilometers today.  Those at the back, like Michal Golas (Sky), Matteo Busato (Wilier Triestina) and Giulio Ciccone (Bardiani-CSF) took advantage of the relatively slow pace to stretch their legs and back before the racing heated up.  Even with the goal of riding at the front of the peloton for safety, someone is going to be on the tailend of affairs.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  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:  This will be just one of the hundred plus paintings that will be included.
