Rio Olympics: Lift Off

I will admit that I painted this mainly for the orange jacket on the Dutch rider.  Maikel Van Der Vleutin (Netherlands) was one of the riders who knocked down a rail on his ride.  Sadly he did it on the very last gate, and with it his chances of an Olympic medal went with the rail.  But hey, he has an amazing orange riding jacket, so all is not lost.

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!
