Illustration – Sample 3

This is a painting I did a few years back using designers gouache. It is about the Paris–Roubaix cycle race (a UCI World Tour event – 257km / 159.7miles) that is famous for its difficulty due to the narrow uneven cobblestone roads. I like it because the lead rider of the Europcar team is on a Colnago bike. (I am a keen cyclist and ride a much cheaper Colnago bicycle myself).
