Tour de France painting, cyclists in the rain, Stage 15, 2014 by Maxine Dodd
Poor visibility!

Hello! I have looking back lately, as next year sees the tenth anniversary of launching my blog and website, ‘Racing Lines’. I want to celebrate this milestone and invite you to join me to look back over my archive of paintings and drawings made with watercolour, pen and ink, with the occasional dab of pastel – all of them inspired by sport, movement and fleeting moments. They will be selected at random – just finding pictures I like and sharing again for fun! I am going to categorise them as ‘Racing Lines Lookback’ so they are easy to find.

This look back goes to the Tour de France 2014, Stage 15, Tallard to Nîmes, a long transition stage with challenging weather and crosswinds. Heartbreak for Jack Bauer who thought he would take his first stage win for Garmin but sprinters hunted down caught and passed him after he had been at the front most of the way. The scene shows the peloton progressing along in the rain – you can see umbrellas in the crowd at the side. I loved the straight road and dark clouds.

Have a great Thursday!

    10 years – how time flies! You’ve reminded me that I’ll be ‘7’ on the 4th April… I’m going to have to stop playing golf and get out more! Looking forward to some more TdF images. 😊
