Rio Olympics: Perfect into Green

My neighbor had made a remark about needing a lot of green to paint the diving events, at the time I hadn't a clue what he meant.  Now I do.  Something had gone wrong with the filter system for both of the outdoor water pools, but now the diving pool is almost back to a bright blue.  The coloring of the venue, Tania Cagnotto's (Italy) swimsuit and the water almost created this painting for me.  Cagnotto claimed her first individual Olympic medal after her third visit to the Games.  She very proudly now has a Bronze Medal.

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!
