This original Graham Watson photograph was converted to a watercolor image (printed on archival watercolor paper) using the art quality Ciclee process. Because of the details and subtle gradations of tone and color, this art-quality printing process is recognized by museums, galleries, and collectors worldwide. This image depicts Armstrong, surrounded by his teammates, proudly carrying the “Stars and Stripes” along the Champs Elysees cobblestones while celebrating his second Tour victory in 2000.
Only the highest quality archival inks made by Scitex have been used to produce these prints.
