Tour de France 2020: Stage 1 – Peloton on the Promenade

Stage 1: Peloton on the Promenade, watercolour pen and ink painting by Maxine Dodd

Second image from Stage 1 – and one I really enjoyed making – and have been looking forward to making – as it shows the peloton on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice. One of my favourite arists is Raoul Dufy – and this was one of his favourite places. I make no bones about the fact that it is his style that inspires my pictures – in so many ways. His lovely use of colour and line, along with the movement and joie de vivre that his pictures convey – If mine were to come anywhere close, I would be a very happy woman! If you don’t know his pictures, I urge you to have a look, because they will make you smile and bring colour to any dull day!
