Rio Olympics: Victory Lap

Tears of joy flooded the face of Elia Viviani (Italy) as he rode his victory lap in the Velodromo.  Viviani had ridden a smart race, always keeping a close eye on those trying to overtake his point lead.  Most notably out sprinting Mark Cavendish on his way to the Gold Medal in the Omnium.  I just loved this image of him trying to dry his tears with his country's flag.  The flag fluttered behind him like a brides veil as he circle the wooden velodrome.

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!
