2017 Tour de France Stage 5 & 6 Watercolors

For an overview of my Tour de France watercolor project, click here.

My stage 5 watercolor was inspired by the start of the La Planche des Belles Filles climb.  I always love seeing the polka-dot banners that announce each climb's start.  We celebrate the summits of Tour de France climbs for all the excitement they bring.  But every great climb also has a beginning.  More often than not, that beginning is just an ordinary spot on the road, made extraordinary by the Tour.

My Stage 6 watercolor is of one of the many lovely stone bridges the Tour crosses every year.
