Rio Olympics: Ramping It Up

After the Colombian had lapped the field, it was time for the second sprint of the race.  This one was rather hot with the Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish (Great Britain) mixing it up with the leader, Italian sprinter Elia Viviani.  Helping to excite the crowd was the Brazilian, G. Monteiro vying for points.  Spoiler alert:  Cavendish was able to claim an Olympic Medal at long last, a Silver.  So this season he has worn the Yellow Jersey in the Tour de France and won an Olympic Medal, these have been to of his career goals for a very long time.  Chapeau, Mark!

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!
