Le Tour de France: Descending the Alps



Lots of downhill action, such fun to watch (from Australia) if you sit really close to the TV. I get motion sick sometimes!! This is a smaller painting than my others, it matches last years size.

Rain on Tour


Not many rainy days this year. I love them, as the reflections and the steam make for great atmosphere. Not sure the riders are that keen, although the hot days seem so uncomfortable!


Through Valleys



Lots of lovely villages in the valleys: a chance for the riders to relax between climbs.


Le Tour in Snow Alps



Beautiful vistas for us, probably not noticed by the riders: 
these two are heading downhill at great speed!

The Rear of the Peloton


The action is not always at the front!!
This is one of my favourite Le Tour paintings. I have given the original to my daughter. I have prints available through Etsy. I make the limited edition prints myself, matching the colour exactly! I use archival inks and paper, and they'll last longer than the originals!!
I have other works available too: MY ETSY SHOP

Racing Le Tour


I love painting speed from Le Tour de France. The actual protagonists are of little consequence: its mainly the colour and movement!!

Riding the Rain on Stage 12

I look forward to rainy stages! There are dramatic scenes, reflections on the roads, and rising steam! Somehow I don't think the riders love it that much!

Forever Winning, This Team


Another painting from Le Tour de France. This is from the team trials, where eight riders rode to win. No competition on the road, just the clock! I have deliberately left off the colours, just to add to the mystery...!


Le Tour de France – The Breakaway Through The Crowds


I've been painting Le Tour de France for a few years now, and I'm constantly trying to improve my technique. This is a slightly 'looser' impression than previous efforts, so I'm happy to post it here in my blog.

Storm Brewing at Nattai Mines


24 x 32cm Acrylic on Paper
While travelling (not far from Sydney) I have been painting each night in the van, using photos and sketches from the day's adventures. No plein air for me at the moment!! The temp is too close to zero out there!
