Winter Olympics and Challenge 261

I love watching the Winter Olympics and spent large blocks of time glued to the coverage.  Probably because of my lifelong interest in dance, and specifically ballet, figure skating is one of my very favorite events.  As I was getting ready to watch the Women's Short Program, I was surfing the NBC Olympic website and found this photo of Mirai Nagasu.  I fell in love with this perky, skilled, 16 year old while watching her skate at Nationals several weeks before.  Although she was being considered the US hope for the future, she appeared to be in a group with other world class skaters already.  I loved the entire coverage of the Women's event and have never been so impressed as I was with Kim Yu-Na's free skate on Thursday evening.  But I was even more thrilled that Mirai finished in 4th place!!   




Great job, you captured her grace.

Fabulously done, great colors.

What a lovely, lovely drawing of a really remarkable skater! nancy

This one is really graceful Shirley. I love watching the winter olympic games too and I kind of regret I didn't actually pick up my pencil to do something that's themed similarly. Ah well, I'll be more sensitive the next time when I am less distracted by so many changes around me. Thanks for the comment :)

Great painting! You caught the gracefulness of her and your figure looks so natural and relaxed.

Such fluid movement, Shirley! Bravo! You really captured her well.

You've really captured her here! Wonderful sketch!

What a beautiful rendition! I love watching the Olympic,especially the snowboarding as Shaun White propels the sport to new heights. Great JOb

You have a talent for catching the moment and motion. I enjoyed this one and the others you have posted on your site. Good work.

You have such wonderful flowing lines. And it is such an unusual position for the human body to be int - not one you would normally draw - well done
