All with credit cards. From a sketch en plein air in 2012 on the Dordonge. 27 x 14cm on paper.
This was Limeuil at the convergance of the Dordonge with the Vezeres. There are two bridges at right angles. During the night on the campsite just beyond the riverbank shown there was a hell of a bang. When we towed our caravan away to continue our touring, we found out why. The authorites were repairing the bridge rails (big drop) where a car had crashed into them, luckily not dropping into the water.
That is the tree lined river bank at the back. The cyclists, all USA as it happened, are part under a sun parasol.

This is great Derek. A wonderful balance of suggestion and detail in the foreground. The rest of it is exactly as I see a summer day without my eyeglasses - a colourful blur.

I think it is so interesting to see what you can do with a simple credit card! Intriguing composition.
