Tour, Stage 7: A Long Flat Stage

This is one of the paintings were I am very satisfied with how the sky turned out.  This stretch of road is usually used near the end of the Tour.  The road leads to Chartes, just a half hour train ride out of P
aris.  Today's stage was the longest of this year's Tour at 231 kilometers.  With the exception of a brief moment where the peloton split is some relatively mild cross winds, it was a rather relaxed stage with the peloton riding almost an hour behind the slowest predicted time.  That alone was a good thing for the American Lawson Craddock (EF Education First) amongst others.  Craddock has been nursing his injuries from Stage 1 and has been fearing having to head home every stage.  He has been raising money, getting fans (and himself) to pledge money to a Huston cycling group and Velodrome that suffered mightly in last fall's hurricanes.

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.
