David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) ahead of Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) working so hard to keep the distance – a brilliant descender and very exciting to watch..

I applied oil pastel here to add highlights and emphasis – Lovely gooey material with all the quality of oil.

Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) in pursuit of David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) flying down a treachorous wet road – Colbrelli edged out Michael Matthews in the sprint but still not quite enough to catch Mark Cavendish for Green – yet. Cavendish survives these mountain stages – but Colbrelli is a good climber and sprinter – as is Matthews, so it remains to be seen how things will pan out over the next two days.

Possibly a more honest title would be Pyrenees deluge – it was very wet in the mountains yesterday. It was a long stage, with many facets to the racing – I chose to have a more experimental day artistically – by introducing oil pastel here and there over the dry watercolour for highlights – in others, applying the oil pastel first and using watercolour over the top as a resist. This one uses the pastel after the watercolour and pen have dried.

I am still working on some of them but this one conveyed how I imagined the conditions must have felt – it was unseasonably cold and wet – Hopefully, conditions will be better for them today.

Some wonderful descending on show in this stage, as well as gruelling climbing at other times… Here is some wonderful descending by a trio which included Guillaume Martin his Cofidis colleague, Rubén Fernández and Mattia Cattaneo of Deceuninck Quick Step – Martin gave it everything but slipped to ninth place on the GC after starting the day in second place – these stages are cruel!

Lovely to make the posts and images from the Pyrenees and this one the way to Andorra, a favourite place – we used to go to ski in the winter, but not for a while – probably the knees wouldn’t be up to much these days, but such a great landscape – another classic Tour view – fab
