"Book de Tour" is a collection of small watercolor and ink paintings from the 2014 Tour de France completed as the race unfolded on the author/artists television screen, showing what is to believe to be the key moments of each stage. Cycling’s an unpredictable sport and the author has captured and conveyed its intensity. The key moves, lung-searing attacks and counter-attacks, adrenaline-rushing descents, heart-breaking crashes, set amid the glorious landscapes of England, Belgium, Spain and France chiseled the authors inspiration to tell the story of this year's race with bold strokes and washes of color.
