Rio Olympics: A School of Athletes

The Women's Triathlon started on the beach of Copocabana, with the women running out into the surf for the swim portion of the race.  I was struck at how much the "peloton" looked like a school of fish as they made a turn around on of the buoys that mark the course.  The women were just setting out on a two hours or more all out physical effort.

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!
