Hello! I have been looking back lately, as this year sees the tenth anniversary of ‘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! It’s been a wonderful experience and I have made new art friends along the way – Please share and enjoy!

This look back goes to the Tour de France 2021, Stage 12, where the peloton passed by lavender fields. It was a hot day so the scent must have been heady. If you look at the inscription, it was 62km into the stage, perhaps you were there?

Have a great weekend!
