Rio Olympics: Awaiting

I was struck by this image and wanted to see if I could capture it with my brush and pen.  The racers were preparing to mount the starting blocks before starting their semi final in the 100 Meter Freestyle.  In this line up starting with the dark cap to the right are C. Mignon (France), Y. Kisil (Canada), D. Wierling (Germany), D. Scott (Great Britain), K. Chalmers (Australia), S. Condorelli (Canada), P. Timmers (Belgium) and M. Chierighini (Brazil).

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
