Tour de France - Cycling Frenzy (imaginary)
Quick and rough pastel sketch from imagination. Although not really a cycling enthusiast, I've been enjoying the broadcasts of the Tour de France during the past few weeks, not least for the impressions of the beautiful French countryside, but certainly also respecting the fantastic efforts and achievements of the cyclists. Never did a sketch of a sporting event before nor of cyclists, but now wanted to try out one of cyclists frenzying through the streets towards the finish. As I didn't have a suitable photo handy I drew from imagination. It certainly doesn't look like Wiggins in the yellow jersey. Wax pastel on grained paper (21 x 21 cm).
