Halifax put in the picture ahead of Tour de Yorkshire
As the Tour de Yorkshire rides through the Calder Valley, Welcome to Yorkshire has unveiled award-winning artist Lucy Pittaway's 2018 collection.
This is Lucy’s third year as the official artist for Yorkshire’s flagship sporting event and sees her continue to create bright and colourful depictions of the race as commemorative pieces for the people of Yorkshire and beyond.
Four represent each stage of the newly extended four-day men’s race and two-day women’s race, with a fifth picture depicting the brutal climb up and over the iconic Park Rash.
Each piece includes the start and finish towns and cities along with iconic landmarks and areas of historic interest along the route.
The paintings themselves follow the names of the four stages, with “The Yorkshire Terrier” showing the up and down hills cyclists will face during the final stage from Halifax to Leeds.
“Hopefully this means the people of Yorkshire can enjoy a piece of the artwork that means something to them personally, no matter where they were along the route.”
