Bonjour! How wonderful to be back with Le Tour! Where did the year go? After a grim week in the UK, it was fantastic to lose oneself on the beautiful shoreline of Normandy. The stage was full of thrills, including a dramatic fall for Contador; a nip and tuck breakaway for Alex Howes and Anthony Delaplace but the man who took us all by surprise was Mark Cavendish, who brilliantly took his 27th stage win and his first ever Yellow Jersey! Wow! What a start! Here are my drawings:
Stage 1: Départ
All the red flags!
Cross winds by the sea
Tearing round the bend,
Celebration – The game is up
Stage 1, You can’t beat this lot!
Flat out to the finish!
Just when everyone writes him off, Cavendish does it again!
I’m a mixed media visual artist working in Leicestershire in the UK. I trained in Fine Art using different media including oils and acrylics, but my recent work reflects my love of drawn media, especially pen, ink, watercolour and pastels. My theme is movement – My subjects are varied from landscape, animals, musicians, dancers and sport, especially cycling. The unifying feature of all these subjects is that they are constantly changing – there is movement and energy everywhere.
