This print is a copy of the original “Tour de France Dreams” ink and wash drawing. The original was a concept art drawing that proved very popular. So much so that I was compelled to create it as a digital print. It may at some point also become a digital drawing, we’ll see on that.
It comes in just one size, 18×24 and is printed on the same 310g fine art paper as all my prints.
The 2016 Summer Olympic Games are here and the USA is making their sprint for Gold in cycling.
My newest art print pays homage to the famous statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, created by Polish-French sculptor Paul Landowski. The road cycling and time-trial hopes this year fall on the shoulders of Taylor Phinney and Brent Bookwalter, both experienced cyclist in pressure situations, both with great potential for gold.
This cycling art print is available in three sizes on high quality watercolor paper and will be rolled and shipped to you ready for framing.
Famous for its 21 twisting hairpin switchbacks, the climb to Alpe d’Huez from Bourg d’Oisans has been a favorite among cyclists for many years. Making its debut in the 1952 Tour de France, this beast of a climb will continue to test the legs and lungs of tour riders for many years to come.
The Paris Roubaix race first ran in 1896 and has been torturing cyclists ever since. It is known as “The Hell of the North” because of the difficult road and weather conditions that rage throughout the area. With cobblestone roads and wind-swept fields, this “Queen” of the Classics is an annual favorite among cycling fans everywhere, and a right of passage for any likely classics champion.
With snow-covered Alpine peaks and lush green valley floors, Switzerland sets a stunning backdrop for the Tour de Suisse pro cycling event. One can only wonder if cycling pristine roads between towering mountains can make you forget the pain your legs are in, even if only for a short while.
