Wow, nice paintings, haven't tried acrylic yet. I'm more into oil and watercolor.

I watch the tour d'italia it was awesome. I was rooting for Evans but I guess Basso got the best of him. I think Bassos posture on the bike lent him to peddle more efficient especially up the hills. It seemed he was more on top of the peddles than Evans was. Evans had to get out of the saddle a lot. That and Basso had a great team to help him out.

yes kirby
evans is leaning more forward
where vbasso is straight above the peddales and much smoother

I absolutely love this painting. Not just that I am a Basso fan, but also the way you relive the scenes. Would it by any chance that I can purchase this painting (if I can afford it) ?

Great paintings - can feel the motion. Don't really follow cycling, but these really make me feel a part of the action.
