Rio Olympics: Rough Terrain

Jolanda Neff (Switzerland) road behind those chasing her teammate Linda Indergand.  Once Indergand had been caught it was Neff's turn to carry the flag for her country.  The fans along the road had seen their Polish countrywoman ride by, showing her the Polish flag as she did so.  They seemed a little disinterested in the Swiss woman chasing their girl down.  Neff was never able to catch the wheels of those up the road.  The section that she is riding now is strewn with large cut granite, somewhat reminiscent of the early paving of ancient Roman roads.

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!
