The Sprint

24" x 18" Oil on panel.

This is the moment that the final sprint kicks from one speed to the top speed as the riders make for the line. The Green Jersey is worn by the leader of the sprint competition in the Tour de France and is usually in the mix at the end of a flat stage.

This painting is part imagination, part photo reference from the generous Jonathan Devich to get realistic body shapes.
