Rio Olympics: In Sync

No not the boy band, although Justin Timberlake is anchoring the late night broadcast on NBCtv.  This is the stellar Russian Synchronized Swimming team on their way to the Gold Medal.  This particular movement may have been a commentary on what most of their countrymen and women athletes are going through.  All of the track and field athletes save one were banned from competing due to a Russian team wide doping scandal.  Those Russians (excepting these women) have regularly been booed by the audience.

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!
