Rio Olympics: Like a Greek God

That is what I thought as I finished up this painting.  I guess the discus and the relationship to the original Olympic games may have influenced me just a bit.  The Frenchman, Kevin Mayer was on fire on the second day of the Decathlon.  He had the longest throw of all of the Decathlon competitors, a throw that moved him back into third overall.  The Frenchman had just the Javelin and the 1,500 meter race to complete the ten events that give the Decathlon its name.

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!
