Rio Olympics: Hanging Around

Oleg Vernyayev (Ukraine) could hardly be accused of hanging out.  The amount of work and discipline it takes to be an elite gymnast is almost unfathomable.  So it is unthinkable that he could just hang out.  So putting the pun aside, Vernyayev's performance on the rings is part of how he won the Silver Medal in the Men's All-Around.  Chapeau!

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.
