Tour de France 2020: Stage 2 – All over the road, 86.6km
This third image from Stage 2 is another experimental piece – still in watercolour, pen and ink but this time, I painted the paper in a very bright yellow first, before making the drawing. The lines, the sky and trees are all applied after the ground colour had dried. The image is the first one to feature the fans at the roadside, who are still out in support – albeit wearing masks – nothing hides their enthusiasm which is brilliant as ever!
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.
