Rio Olympics: Slipping to the Back

The Dutch team took to the polished wood of the Rio Velodrome to show their stuff in the qualifying rides today.  The team of four will take turns pushing the pace on the front of the quartet and then use the high banks to swing off the front and slot back onto the back.  Once on the back they can catch a breather until it is their turn on the front again.

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.
