Rio Olympics: Into the Sand Pit

Jarrion Lawson (USA) was having a brilliant Long Jump competition, moving into the lead with this jump.  Sadly, his outstretched left arm and his lean to that direction on this jump was the hint on what was to come.  On his final jump his hand hit the sand long before any other part of his body, but that was what determined the length of his flight, and what left him off of the podium.

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.
