This second image from Stage 2 is something that ‘came’ unexpectedly as I was painting and drawing. The scene was a back view of the riders as they passed the 5km sign at 127.4km – My eye was taken by the rider having a drink – I then applied the paint for the trees quite liberally around – obliterating the sign. I quite liked the effect so left it! See what you think?
Have a great day! 🙂
