Sagan Sizes Up Competition for a Sprint Win
Watercolor on 300 lb Arches. Image: 10.5 x 14.5; professionally matted/framed 16 x 20. When it comes to popular cyclists in the major tours, you can always count on the crowds and fans around the world to look for Peter Sagan. I enjoy capturing his sprints within stages, his stage wins (Stage 5 in the TdF), and his hunt for his 7th Green Jersey in the TdF this year. I'm not sure but I think it is Philippe Gilbert in the blue at the top of the painting at the Amgen Tour of California.. I was fortunate to capture him "sizing up" his competition for the sprint coming up in this stage. The shadows were really important in selecting this image.
