Photo Finish Stage 3 2016 Tour de France
Watercolor 15 x 21 matted 28 x 22. I wanted to paint a couple more of my favorite photos from the 2016 Tour de France. This was one of several photo finish stages where the sprinters pull off a miraculous sprint. In this one Mark Cavendish (in the green) lurked at the right time to beat Andre Greipel (on the left) followed by Bryan Coquard of the French team in the middle. Peter Sagan is just out of the photo on the right wearing the yellow jersey that day while Cavendish was wearing the green jersey. I felt very fortunate to catch their expressions at the finish while I was streaming live the event.
