Rio Olympics: Celebrating His Sweep

Ryan Murphy (USA) saluted the crowd in the hall as he swept both Men's Backstroke races taking home two Gold Medals.  I feel like this is one of my strongest compositions to date.  Here I am 83 paintings into the project of painting the Olympics and I feel like I am really hitting my stride.

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.
