Rio Olympics: A Scrappy One

I searched out some Olympic Boxing to paint.  I happened to find this bout as it was about half way through the the first round.  The matches had moved into the elimination round, so one of these two men were fighting their last match in these Olympic games.  In the end the match went to Carmona Hereda (Spain) in a split decision.  That left Patty Barnes (Ireland), the defending Bronze Medalist from 2012, without a chance to repeat or improve his placing in London.

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.
