The roar of the sprint! watercolour, pen and ink by Maxine Dodd

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!
