Stage 10 saw the race resume in sunshine! A long stage and everything geared towards the sprinters and notably, Mark Cavendish – so much pressure for him to take another stage win and edge nearer to that magic target – He looked calm as he set out and set his stall out for the stage win by not going for the intermediate sprint.
The route passes through the area where the famous green-yellow drink Chartreuse originates, which seems highly appropriate today –
Even the landscape is a gorgeous mix of greens, as you can see…
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.
It’s the thing about painting and drawing that always amazes me too. Just look at the brushwork of Rembrandt, flicks of the brush become embroidered cloth, metal armour, even a beard when he makes them… just incredible.
It’s all mark making at the end of the day… I am just so grateful when the marks and colours come together and tell the story … thank you!
