TOUR DE FRANCE ART PRINTS

TOUR DE FORCE


The"flying" colors of this Tour de France watercolor painting appear to trace the path where the racers had been moments earlier and give the impression of wind and speed. The blurred colors coming off the clothing of the racers give the feeling of urgency and movement. My technique of painting realistic figures against an impressionist background is intended to make you feel like part of the race, not just a spectator. 

The original watercolor painting is 22" x 30" framed to museum quality standards to inside frame size of 32" x 40". To check on the availability of the original painting, please contact.
