Bradley Wiggins writing history. Robert's quote fits perfectly how I felt as I sat on the edge of my seat for the entire Tour. I so wanted him to succeed (along with the entire nation). To be fair, I was as happy as he was when he won, but I knew his happiness must have been infinitely sweeter and deeper.
This had to be a very quick oil sketch as he was gone in a flash :)
I've been ill over Christmas and the New Year and last week was the only time I had to complete jobs before putting our house up for sale. Sitting in the gallery wasn't the priority, although I did hanker for a comfortable safe seat as I perched myself precariously on top of a ladder (not the best activity for old men).
