Racing Le Tour

During the European summer, I was busy painting scenes from Le Tour de France.
I was sitting up late at night (I live in Sydney, Australia) taking photographs of the TV screen as the race unfolded, and quickly sketching and painting the views. At the end of each night I would post the painting on eBay, and sell it after 5 days of (sometimes) competitive bidding.

I've been doing it for three years now. I have new buyers, and a group of 'collectors' who keep returning, and bidding. Many sales are to Americans and Canadians. 

This year, I made contact with a gallery in Amsterdam, who wanted to show my work in their window spaces around the town. So I doubled my output, and had a selection of 21 works to send over in September. They were received very well. 

Which brings me to eBay. I am now selling the paintings from that Amsterdam display.
They are 24 x 32cm (9.5" x 12.5") 
There are five available at the moment, with more being added every few days.
