Rio Olympics: Balanced Grace

From her unique entry to the beam all of the way through to the "unorthodox" dismount, Sanne Wevers (Netherlands) showed incredible grace and power.  Her multi-directional spins were a thing of beauty.  I have capture her mid way through a triple spin atop the four inch wide balance beam.  She won the first medal for Netherlands in this event since 1928 and this one was Gold!

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.  Remember this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
