Stage 16 of the Giro d’Italia

Contador vs Astana

The first of a series of paintings features Fabio Aru. He was riding to the finish and I was drawn to the shape of his face against the cool colors that surround him.

This next painting, from a helicopter’s point of view, shows the Mortirolo climb. It is a switchbacking road against the lush green of the mountain forest. The riders were going through screaming crowds, but from a distance it is just a landscape with a road flowing through it.

I love the pink jersey. It’s a great excuse to make a pink on my pallet. And getting to use pink…. That’s one of the reasons I love watching the Giro d’Italia.

And the last one. Pink again. And pink against grey and Astana blue. And crazy Tinkoff yellow and blue.
