Rio Olympics: Putting the Hammer Down

That is what Mara Abbott (USA) did, she went to the front and put the hammer down.  She raised the pace getting ride of her and her teammate, Megan Garnier's rivals.  Most notably, the reigning World Champion, Lizzie Armitstead (GB) had dropped off the back of this group, unfortunately so did Evelyn Stevens (USA).

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.
