‘Racing Lines: Le Tour’

Hello! I’m in the process of choosing work for my exhibition which opens at the end of June. Over next few weeks, I thought I would run a series of posts featuring some of the pictures that you’ll be able to see. This first collection is based around the first four stages of last year’s Tour de France, set in England and France. They are linked thematically but I’ve grouped them also because they were made in a wide panorama format. I love this paper because it ‘pushes’ the composition to an extra width and reduced height that a conventional landscape paper doesn’t give. See what you think! Here are the drawings:

    • Thank you so much Anita – I love the subject because it lends itself to abstraction, the colours and rhythm fascinate me. The next step is to explore this further I think, see how it goes! 🙂

    • Thank you! I’ve enjoyed the Tour for a long time and am still astounded that they can ride such a long way every day. The endurance is certainly a factor. Plus, I’m a very wobbly cyclist and wish I could ride well. The professionals make it look so graceful, especially in descent, which terrifies me! Thanks again for your lovely comment, 😀
