Practice makes perfect. Or at least better.
If you want to get better at something you practice. Want to ride your bike faster, train more. Want to be a better writer, write more. Want to go to the Tour de France and follow every day in a Motorhome whilst drawing pictures, ummm.
Putting on my twenty pound art backpack, getting on my bike and going out for a few hours every other day is the only way I know how to get ready for this adventure. It won’t make me faster on my bike but it might just help me get through the twenty-one stages of the TdF.
Along with riding and drawing, I’m walking with my art pack, something I don’t do enough of, walk that is. I spend far too much time sitting on my bike or in a chair in front of my computer (like now). So taking the two mile walk around the lake I live near has been helpful, not to mention very pleasant, a habit I may have to keep up with.
So as the time of my departure for the Tour de France draws ever closer, I will continue my homework of riding and drawing. Dealing with wind, rain and mosquitoes isn’t something I have to do in the studio but I do believe the extra effort of training will pay off for me as I follow the Tour de France for 21 Days of Cycling Art!
