Cycling art, Tour de France, watercolour pen and ink painting, Nibali by Maxine Dodd

Bonjour! Stage13 arrived in the Alps and passed through the city of Grenoble. Spectacular scenery, including the still snowy and very white, Mont Blanc. This was another hard stage with more riders abandoning or falling back. Steering a very confident course through much of the race was Alessandro De Marchio who forged ahead. Until that is, the brilliant Vincenzo Nibali burst past everyone in the final kilometres to take the win alone and in style. Vincenzo has worn the Yellow Jersey for many days and must be the favourite for Paris. Who can catch him? Here are my drawings:

    “Up the Mountain…”! Your impressionistic style is so moving…I can feel the incline of the hill in the arch of the rider’s back….wonderful.
