Rio Olympics: Ready to Go

Unlike all of the other swimming events, the backstroke starts with the swimmer in the water.  Here, Ryan Murphy is set to swim his qualifying heat in the 100 meter backstroke.  I wonder how you keep your focus when someone sticks a video camera in your face moments before your race begins?

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
