I wanted to paint key moments with favorite cyclists in the Tour de France over the 21 days. I sure was inspired by Vincenzo Nibali who won Stage 2 by attacking right at the finish to win and have the lowest time. He has worn the "Yellow Jersey" now through Stage 5. He was really something today in the rain and across all the cobblestones! I'm glad I started this painting on Day 2. Not the simple painting I intended though.....
Below is my finished painting after a few adjustments. We all know that Vincenti Nibali continued to amaze everyone each day of the remainder of the Tour. The Yellow Jersey was worn by him all but one other day!
Here's wishing success to Fabian Cancellara over the cobblestones in the rain Stage 5 today of the Tour de France!
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
