Tour de France 2020: Stage 11 – The roar of the sprint
Stage 11’s sprint was a loud affair! I expect most of them are, but I really noticed the sound of the crowd as the riders came through. I wondered how I could convey that – and wound up making strong brush marks, like beats, trying to mimic the hands clattering on the roadside boards. I couldn’t manage the cheering though!
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.
