rarely featured on TV, but / 地味だけど

Olympic & Paralympic Games, Series 3
Wrestling

We did not see this sport featured much on the TV during the Olympic Games – because no British were participating in it – but there were three Gold medals for Japanese girls!

This stamp is designed nicely, sensitively controlled thickness and volume of white lines and Olympic red & blue colours plus subtle other tones.  I respect this kind of attentive work.

英国人が一人も参加しなかったからか、イギリスではレスリングの中継はほとんどされませんでした。結果を見ると、あれまぁ、日本女子が大活躍したのですね。

この切手は渋い色合いだけれど、白の分量と線の太さが細かく計算され、見慣れた赤と青の競技用コスチュームがバックの3色にしっとりと溶け込んでいます。こういう丁寧な仕事は、しみじみと好きな一枚。
