Tour, Stage 19: The Principle Players

While I was painting this I was thinking I would entitle it, "Watching the Principles" but I started writing the word "the" and I was kind of stuck.  These are still the principle players in this Tour being led by the young Colombian, Egan Bernal (Sky) sandwiched between the Sky duo of Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome (both on the road and on GC) is Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb).  At his point, Dumoulin must be trying to figure out how he is going to pull back time on the Maillot Jaune of Thomas.  He has finally gotten ahead of Froome only to have that not be enough to put him in yellow. 

The thought for the alternative title comes from the race referee who has popped his head out of the sunroof of the following race vehicle.  He is just making sure there are no vechicles between the various groups of cyclists that could offer an unfair aerodynamic advantage to one or another.

This is a small 4x6 inch original watercolor painting that is available though my website at, or you can simply follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Since it is an original it is first come first served.  The painting was created using Yarka St Petersburg watercolors from The work sells for $75 plus shipping. And yes, international shipping is available.
